Happening Now

What's going on in my shop and news

As I'd stated earlier, I'm retired now, but still tinkering. I'd planned on closing down the website, but circumstances have conspired against that blessed event (for me), so I'll be tinkering with that as well.

It's heating season. Please humidify your instruments so I don't have to repair them.

Again, thanks to everyone who has made it possible for me to spend a large portion of my adult life doing a job I love.



This experimental bluegrass banjo will hopefully be lightweight and supremely playable, yet still have great bluegrass chops. An integral tone ring and flange make it unique, and I'll be trying some new ideas along the way.


Thanks again! It's been fun!
