Well, summer NAMM is over and everyone we talked to felt it was a successful show. Coming off of Austin, which saw a sharp decline in attendance and enthusiasm, many folks were talking about whether there would be a future at all for the summer NAMM show. However, we got a completely different vibe here in Nashville. Attendance was up and the energy level seemed to be significantly higher. All of the vendors reported to us that they were pleased with the show, so it could be that Summer NAMM is here to stay and we'd all love to see it get back to its former self.

The excitement is building in Nashville as Summer NAMM opens today. This year, Summer NAMM returns to Nashville after a short stopover in Austin where attendance declined.

The venue will be the convention center in downtown Nashville. A quick stroll through the venue today showed hundreds of vendors scrambling to get their exhibits set up for attendees where they hope to attract buyers for just about every music related item imaginable.

lonis.jpgThis Saturday, May 10th, the NY Amp show will switch from standby to "ON". The Amp Show is a truly unique event for guitar lovers and tone junkies. Just envision an entire hotel clearing out for a day, allowing hundreds of guitar players to wander into guest rooms filed with some of the biggest names to boutique amp dealers, allowing them to plug in, play, and test their rigs. And you won't find any noise police wandering the halls squelching the wall of amp tones.

We asked Loni Specter about this weekend's event with our five-question "Countdown" interview format to give you a better picture of what's coming up.

GJD: 5. What's new for the 2008 NY Amp Show?
