I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK YOU!

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.
