Re: Factory built instruments

Great link!, thx

Stradivarius was reputed to have produced 1000 instruments over his lifetime so its probably not that different to what his workshop must have been like. Still Im not sure I envy the hours it took to perfect that f hole cutting technique :shock:

You're a friggin cack Padma. When tempering is it better to align the molecules with directed psychic energy or allow the chi to align by itself? I look forward to the eBook at Amazon.

Re: The A-440 Freek~wince~E

I am always bemused by the reverence which some historical instruments are held. Usually we hear them played at A-440 when the pitch was not near that at the time. An off the bald head scat list - Cremonese violins (Stradivari, Amati, Guaneri etc, etc) Not only played at higher pitch but with new ne...

Re: TC Bianca & Anthony

I sat through a Cat 3 on Daydream Island once. There was a lot of force in that puppy but fortunately the place was made of concrete so there was no real damage. Cant imagine a 4 or 5. Ive flooded three times this year as well. A good year to forget. Good luck.
