I just wanted to start a thread to publicly thank some of the suppliers who make such high quality fittings, parts and cases for the instruments that we love so much. Tomorrow I deliver a new Campanella Octave Mandolin to Ben Sollee.
I couldn't have done it without the dedication, hard work, and on time delivery from these folks and their respective crews!
Laurie Dougherty at Cedar Creek Cases/TKL; for their well-made custom case, and precise delivery!
Steve Smith at Cumberland Acoustic; for being there on Saturday, and for the bridges!
Bill James from Axiom Inc. for the top-shelf tailpieces; and getting them here on time!
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank them publicly, for making the parts that are the icing on the cake of a fine mandolin.
all the best,
