Phillip,

Does he enjoy playing on your cello?

Yes of course, And he’s good enough to benefit from that kind of instrument but he doesn’t want to spend that much money.

As a former 11-B, that made me smile very wide.

I was the best cellist in my Division, and now I’m the best Infantryman in my orchestra, haha.

[Plays a bit of a catchy little tune you'd recognize.]  Glad to hear it, and wishing you a good Memorial Day weekend a week early.  :)

I hate the fact that people are so dense they don’t know what Caissons are, so the word got dumped in lieu of “Army”

”over hill, over dale, we will hit the dusty trail, as the CAISSONS go rolling along.”

oy...

I feel that part of it was that it was thought that the original wording was too focused on the arty, "Yellow Ribbon" is all cav, and the only well-known Army grunt anthem is both unfit for public performance and special to the airborne, so what do you do?  :lol:

Well what I did was get out, haha. Although when I was in, we still used the correct word.

You won't find any nice makers, or shops.

Just have a look at the mudslinging rivalry in some of the threads here.  Makers pitted against makers, with hurtful, caustic, violent remarks directed towards each other: Things like "Hey Jer,  where'd you learn to set necks,  New York? they look all wrong!"  or, "Bill, your last batch of varnish looks kind of pale, and you're cutting your nuts too high." or, "You wouldn't recognize a real dovetail, even if it was still attached to the pigeon!"

Wars were started over less .:lol:

You are quite wrong here. There are 3 of us, locally in New Haven. Our shop is in New Haven, Larry Wilke is in Clinton, and Ute Brinkmann is in Wallingford. I’m not going to outright brag about our own shop- it speaks for itself. Google it: K.H. Chapin fine Violins.

What I will say is that both Larry and Ute are fine people and excellent luthiers in their own right. We all have a friendly relationship and run into each other often. We all do excellent business so there is no rivalry. I purchased my violin from Larry as a teenager and respect him greatly. Also ran into him at the VSA— he’s a great guy who does some gorgeous antiquing, and his cellos are excellent. Ute and our shop share many clients and we run into each other in town at events. The first time we met her she brought some wood to us as an offering of friendship, and she does a lot of charitable work. We all send each other business if one of us is too bogged down to take on more work. 

We all get along quite well here.

Bill is joking (sarcasm) using some disagreements and rather long winded threads from this forum as material..  :) 

This forum is non-commercial.  Read a bit and I think you'll find a good number of pros share knowledge and recommend colleagues.  Many of us know each other outside the Maestronet world (teach together, collaborate, do business together, meet at conferences, enjoy each others company). 

Welcome to the forum.  Please give my best to Ute and Larry.
