Subject: BS: Getaway 2009 Instrument Clinic Workshop
From: Luthier2b
Date: 24 Sep 09 - 09:04 PM

It seems that I will be leading an "Instrument Clinic" workshop again this year and I want to solicit people to bring thier instruments to this workshop to discuss (imagine that).

"How folk instruments work and how to keep them working" is what appears when one does a mouseover on the online schedule at this link.

Do bring instruments which may or clearly do need repair, or that were improperly repaired they would be a welcomed addition. We can discuss strategies and techniques for repairing them, what not to do, perhaps even how worthy they are of being repaired.

Weird, unusual, conventional, and previously-banned instruments will all in-theory be welcomed.

Certainly care and maintenance will be discussed.

If you have a specific topic you want discussed mention it here. I might be able to bring something to facilitate the discussion of that topic.

-- Eric

Instruments that need repair?

How many of each do you need!

Bruce; I have an hour to fill (not hard) but not exceed (not so easy). I do not need duplicates like epoxy-glued necks.

But instruments that have issues which are discernable and can be discussed are a lot more interesting than trying to have an abstract conversation about something which is not present to reference.

A Mudelf needs to take off the "BS" designation and run this thread up to the top of the page!

I epoxy'd my neck once but afterwards it still had a cramp so I sawed it off at the base and then the headache went away entirely.

There was a guy in France who cured LOTS of headaches back in the 1700s...

Yes, Stilly's right. This belongs above the fold.

I know that Dr Guillotine created an instrument which would remove headaches. For the purposes of this discussiom and the workshop I plan to limit the scope to instruments which were intended for the making of music.

If someone has a Tremoloa, Ujelin, Dulciola, or a Marxophone or a similarly unusual instrument which is in need of a tune-up or full-on repair that would be a great addition to this workshop.
