“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

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.
