    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    Subjects always come up to jog my memory of what I saw. Another thread unrelated to this reminded me, I was walking somewhere in Hall E which is downstairs where most of the mandolin activity is at...

    Re: Octofone

    Visited their booth at NAMM Show, thought they were a pretty good option for someone looking for a reasonably priced instrument. Most of what they had were set to guitar tuning but they had one tuned...
  7. Re: “one announcement we're privy to that will rock the industry”

    We did a feature interview with Steve back in 2014 that's worth a revisit. When you understand the scope of what they perform, the work they're doing for major, well known, guitar (and other...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    I readily admit I'm not paying much attention to electric tenor guitar discussions, nor have I read most of the posts other than to discern they're difficult to find. That said, isn't this one of...

    These ukes caught our eye at the show and at $39 on amazon they're too cool. The Waterman ukulele from Kala. Clear plastic, beach ready it appears.

  16. Re: “one announcement we're privy to that will rock the industry”

    It got the attention of other builders at the show, and plenty not there as well. Carlson is a big deal, has always been a big deal, and many of the people that worked under him at Flatiron are still...

    Learned this morning there is a 6th new Weber model yet to announce that was not at the show. They want to wait for that announcement to be made.

    There's a bunch of black magic going on with these bridges. I don't want to hand out information I'm not 100% sure on but I was like, "it'll do WHAT?" when I heard. I may be seeing Steve again late...

    Someone took some cell phone video of myself and J.P. Cormier, the well know Canadian guitar great trying out the new Zeta models. Wasn't aware he played mandolin. J.P. has chops!

    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    Never get tired of looking at Eastman's El Rey mandolin. They were taken by surprise by how popular they were so more are in the pipeline. Sharing this one out here before it goes on social media.
