NAMM Hacks: Tips for Surviving the 2017 NAMM Show


Ahhhh, The NAMM Show! That wonderful event where we get to spend four straight days inside a fluorescent-lit convention hall, standing on our feet for eight hours straight and screaming to be heard over the sound of 100 Guitar Centers at once, all while fighting crippling back pain and jet lag, struggling to find real food to eat and a quiet place to shit, and battling through throngs of Nikki Sixx-lookalike L.A. tryhards. It’s the most magical time of the year!

Thankfully Gear Gods has you covered with some “NAMM Hacks,” tips for surviving the show from Devin Townsend, Rob Scallon, Drewsif Stalin, Kevin Antreassian from the Dillinger Escape Plan, Justin McKinney from The Faceless and The Zenith Passage and a whole lot more.

My own personal NAMM hack: the second floor bathrooms are great for a mid-day shit. Nice and quiet. Probably shouldn’t have shared that one.

Watch the second annual NAMM Hacks video below, as well as the first one for good measure. And don’t forget to follow Gear Gods for up-to-date NAMM 2017 coverage.
