I don't know how long this is available, but it looks like a very good deal. 198 original recordings for just $3.99.
15 December 2012 - 11:38 PMSo, I write/direct/produce training, promotional, and corporate video. In an effort to offer lower prices to my customers, I decided to buy some camera, production, and editing equipment this year and learn to use it myself, instead of renting it for each project, hiring others to operate it, and passing along those costs.
I’ve made a few videos by myself (no crew or editor) as exercises—the objective of each being to provide myself hands-on experience with various challenges I will encounter in a client video, or to learn techniques I know I will need to employ.
Among other things, the video below was an exercise is shooting in low light. I thought I’d get some extra mileage out of my effort by also making it a musical holiday greeting for friends, and to also give you folks an opportunity to see and hear my J-45 Legend in action, albeit in a very simple musical setting. If you have some speakers connected to your computer, I think you’ll get a good representation of its tone.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. And if not, happy holidays, anyway.
09 June 2012 - 11:29 AMJust wanted to let you know that bone(!) saddles for the adjustable bridge are available from philadelphialuthiertools.com.
I just received a couple that I ordered earlier in the week. They are beautifully CNC'd by a Japanese company called HOSCO. I learned of these from the BeatGearCavern; a member there found that HOSCO made the saddles but did not sell retail, so he got the owner of Philadelphia Luthier Tools & Supply to place a minimum quantity order.
Bone is not guaranteed to sound "better" than Tusq (standard on modern adjustable bridge models) or ceramic (common on the vintage models), and indeed could even be more inconsistent than those materials, but I'm excited to see what difference it makes. I'll probably replace the Tusq saddle on one of my Texans this weekend or early next week. I'll keep you posted.
