    Yes. "Coronavirus" is a broad term describing a large group of viruses. There isn't just one single "coronavirus." Some strains of coronavirus are quite mild and are responsible for some colds. (As...

    This year I am going to be making an effort to re-home anything that just doesn't get the love it deserves from me, instruments that I just don't have time to play because I am playing other ones....

    If I did not have a Martin Konter that fills this role (soprano with great "vintage" sound), I would definitely be all over this. This is a great deal on a great instrument, so someone needs to take...

    Let me second this. I love that you are continuing to tweak and work on different strings, and I love that you are asking for input directly from the community.

    Yes, it is a Kala branded case. But it does fit it quite nicely!

    (As I recall, they use Kala branded cases for the Pop's made Pineapple Sunday as well. Again, it fits great.)

    Yeah, burning a small amount in a stove or fireplace is unlikely to have a large impact globally, but could have pretty bad outcomes very locally (fire, toxic fumes, etc.)

    I know she sold Concert #001. I think that each of the sizes gets it's own numbering, so there should be three #001's; a soprano, a concert, and a tenor.

    I thought that Kamaka used black nylon, not fluorocarbon, strings. They certainly used to.
