Here at KLOS, we believe music moves you. And, come January 2024, it will be moving us from Utah to California for the National Association of Music Merchants convention. As the air buzzes with excitement and the stage is set for NAMM 2024, it's time to gear up for an exhilarating journey into the heart of the music industry. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a fresh face eager to dive into the world of sound, NAMM is an adventure waiting to unfold. 

1. Plan Your Path

NAMM can be overwhelming, with a plethora of exhibits, performances, and industry giants. Start by charting your course. Identify the brands and products you're keen on exploring. Trust me, a well-thought-out plan will save you from wandering aimlessly through the sea of music gear. And, you'll be bummed if you never ended up demoing that new peddle you've been hearing all about.

2. Embrace the Tech Marvels

In the ever-evolving landscape of musical technology, NAMM is the place to witness groundbreaking innovations. From the latest digital interfaces to futuristic instruments, keep your eyes peeled for the tech marvels that might shape the future of music.

3. Networking Magic

One of the true gems of NAMM is the opportunity to connect with fellow musicians, industry experts, and like-minded souls. Attend workshops, strike up conversations, and build a network that will last far beyond the event. You never know where the next collaboration or inspiration might come from.

4. Catch the Live Performances

NAMM isn't just about gear; it's a celebration of music in all its glory. Make time for the live performances scattered across the venue. Discover new artists, witness jaw-dropping demonstrations, and immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of musical genres.

5. Attend Educational Sessions

Expand your knowledge and sharpen your skills by attending the educational sessions offered at NAMM. From production masterclasses to marketing strategies, these sessions are a goldmine for anyone looking to up their musical game.

6. Gear Demos Galore

This is where your meticulously planned path comes into play. Attend as many gear demos as you can. Get hands-on experience with the instruments and equipment you've been eyeing. It's not just about seeing – it's about feeling and hearing the magic these tools can create.

7. Pace Yourself

With so much to see and do, it's easy to get carried away. Pace yourself to avoid burnout. Take breaks, grab some refreshments, and let the waves of inspiration wash over you. Trust me; a rejuvenated mind absorbs the experience far better.

8. Capture the Moments

In the whirlwind of NAMM, it's easy to forget the details. Capture the moments through photos or quick notes. Documenting your experience not only helps you remember but also allows you to share the highlights with your audience or peers. If you stop by and see us, be sure to tag us on Instagram (@klosguitar)! 

9. Seek the Unconventional

While the main attractions are undeniably thrilling, don't shy away from exploring the less traveled corners of NAMM. You might stumble upon hidden gems, emerging talents, or niche products that spark your creativity.

10. Come Say Hi to Us

It's not a complete trip to NAMM until you say hi to KLOS! Discover the harmony of durability as you explore the cutting-edge world of carbon fiber instruments. Trust me; it's an experience that will leave you not just impressed but inspired. Plus, you can see all of the cool and innovative new instruments we've got cooking.
