The Year Ahead, Instruments and Tuning.

Greetings.  I am in Morgantown WV for the fourth time in 6 months where I will spend 5 days finishing a couple of instruments built here in the Mannette Instruments Workshop.  Before I say anything else I would like to thank Ellie and the MI crew for giving me the opportunity to work out of that space. Reconnecting with Ellie has been inspiring and transforming.  Thank you!

The decision to leave Austin this year and spend 7 months on the road was difficult but had a purpose.  Now 6 months into the 7 months on the road everything I thought I would be doing as this year came to a close has been turned upside down as so often happens, best laid plans and all…

Social media will take care of filling in the details of what is happening.  The purpose of this particular post is to fill in some blanks of this new website.

As with the old site there are no prices listed for instruments that I make.  If you are interested in ordering an instrument contact me and we can discuss specifics.  I am able to take a very limited number of orders this year and orders placed by the following deadlines will be completed by the end of 2014.

For new chrome instruments the order deadline is May 1st.  

For non-chrome instruments the order deadline is September 1st.

If you have a steel band that needs to be tuned over the next year please consider planning the tuning up to 6 months in advance.  3 months notice is a requirement at this point.

Thank you for reading.  Stay tuned here on the site for news, join the mailing list and otherwise stay in touch.  With much gratitude –
