It is.

If you are interested in new gear then it's pretty cool, especially if you're interested in gear that's made by smaller companies. If you go to the booth of a small company, you're 99% likely to talk to the person who designed and made that piece of gear and they'll do a better job explaining it than a sales person at a music store. I definitely saw and played some things that piqued my interest and that I otherwise couldn't have tried out in person.

However, it is LOUD in there, the layout is confusing, and there's a lot of walking involved. So once I reached the point of saturation I just wanted to get out, but it still took about 20 minutes to get away from it all.

The one time I went to NAMM I got thee most false initial impression of it ever. I walked in and the very first thing I saw was the Swarmatron. I immediately played the Swarmatron and talked to the inventor. Almost everything after that was guitar licks and software booths. Except that I saw Cheap Trick for free that night. I think AES on a Sunday is the way to go.
