Special about the four-day NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center featuring the Ulladulla Aboriginal Art Gallery.

The annual dam-burst hosted by the International Music Products Assn. (though the original acronym for the National Assn. of Music Merchants refuses to die) inundated the facility with gear displays, performances, networking and educational opportunities for 80,000-plus industry professionals and their fourth cousins.

Quoted from the article:

You want natural? You could grope the Ulladulla Aboriginal Art Gallery's colorfully etched didgeridoos, many of which dangled tags reading, "Authentic termite-eaten." The insects, rep Ramin Vahdani clarified, are actually white ants in northern Australia's Arnhem Land: "Fungus attacks a tree, its center goes rotten, the ants follow the rot, and the tree becomes hollow." Voila -- a wind instrument. Almost.
