    @Thorton You coming this year also?

    And @GlennDog ?

    I'd love to . . . I cannot commit 'til 30 days out, depending on mode of transport
    Long, short ... this is bc my busy season has a short window. So when it's busy I have to get all over it

    Plane, train or automobile?

    Knowing you and your recent buying habits, we'll need a 3500 GMC with extra towing capacity to drag all that swag back to the "D" B)

    Well there is the vendor area Tony that does sell items at a bit less than retail depending on what you're looking for Joe. Not really gear per say but cables, interconnects, music and such
  • tonybtonyb Posts: 32,503
    Don't know if I'd call what that area offered "a deal". They were still priced pretty high.

    Gear though, last day of the show is best to play lets make a deal.
