    The story of Sam Chang , Dave Talsma and “The Kitty tenor” or Hiring a Luthier to build your Ukulele

    I still regret selling my Talsma custom concert taropatch. The buyer got a steal of a deal on it too! This one also sounded absolutely fantastic! The man is a true artist....and very patient with "know it all" customers.
