  13. Re: Who are builders who, consistently, build clean F5s?

    I'll throw in Ben Wilcox's work (BRW). I traded in my Collings MF5 for one of his because his had a better tone. Check out the gallery on his website. His recent work is immaculate.

    To say that classical training is exploitative is just wrong. It's not just about playing pieces or submitting oneself to a fascist regime of technical perfection. There are many classical teachers...

    I have this app for Android... And I agree it's one of the most useful apps any musician could have. I love the fact that it has a chord analyzer and how you can tune multiple notes at a time!
