It will be goal after NAMM to see that the Looperlative LP1 makes appearance in a wide variety of places. Unfortunately, I have no specific plans until I see how things go at NAMM. For those of you attending NAMM, please stop by the booth and say hello. I will have at least one LP1 available for demonstration purposes. I'll have some instruments available and connected to the input of the LP1. For those of you in the San Jose area, I highly recommend Steve Lawson's masterclass. I attended the first, but unfortunately missed last year due to illness. If you can't be at NAMM and you can't be at Steve's class, then please leave a post on the Looperlative bulletin board. There is a thread about LP1 previews. I don't think that I will be able to schedule anything until after Steve's class, but I would be happy to have an open house where you guys could stop by and play with the LP1 for a few hours.
