"Just received my latest classical guitar kit. I had a couple of requests for wood selection, and you did a great job in selecting on both counts,
In addition, all the wood was great quality - this was an expensive kit, but your product made it a very good value to me.

Thanks for the great work!"


The Art of Tap Tuning



"Tap tuning" is the art of adjusting the tone of each physical part of an acoustic string musical instrument during construction, so that it produces an excellent tone. It is based on the premise that the structural components of an acoustic instrument contribute the the overall tone and, therefore, the structural components should be in tune with each other as well as in tune with the strings of the instrument.

While the content generally focuses on guitar and mandolin construction, the concepts derived from the book can be applied to violins, cellos, bass viols, ukuleles, mandolins, banjos and more.

Tap tuning provides for a means of building instruments that sound great and can be built with consistency, instrument after instrument.
