  6. Celebrating our 15th Anniversary, Weber is offering

    The 10th Anniversary Mandolin. Let me explain
    Bruce has only had time to make three, and there were 10 planned. I am not at all sure there is enough time left in the Weber universe to build all ten at this rate, but he is now offering the instrument as an mandola, octave, or mandocello. Call the shop if you have an interest- these do take quite awhile to build and you might want to get the project started.

  8. What Does The Declining Price of Recorded Music Mean?

    That ever growing stack of CDs in your house, they turn into little furry woodland creatures at night when you sleep. It's true, because when you awake they've bred and multiplied, only with different names, different genres and different musical instruments. More than enough clutter to justify one of the most famous lines from the movie The Graduate: "plastics."

    So we were happy to read that for the first time in history, sales of digital music downloads finally passed that of hard copy--CD, ...
