PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sadly, the logistics and demands on my world here on the East Coast have prevented me from ever attending the NAMM Show in the past (and also the Comic Con International: San Diego) but what can you do. We do wish all of our musical friends and those who are reading the website the best of times if they are going to the event and can say that I look forward to perusing their Official Facebook and Instagram accounts. I’d also like to take this time to remind those friends that we collect signature guitar picks and band promotional photos so uhm yeah. Have fun. See you next time and if you are heading to NAMM please chime in down below and let us know what you are most excited about.
