Being as mine is an older violin, ca 1880-1900, and being as I bought in from a music shop second-handed, I guess the original owner is dead, and probably the second owner as well! I'm grateful that they passed the instrument along, even if it did sit in granny's attic for awhile. I would like to think that some day my fiddle will fall into hands that love it as much as I do; maybe those hands will be able to play it more beautifully than I do. My kids? If they suddenly had an interest in the fiddle, I would be happy to give it to them, but that is not on the horizon. I just would weep to see my fiddle become a decoration for someone's dining room wall.

I love the idea of a hands on retirement village - one of my favorite and most hated galleries in the Victoria and Albert museum, or indeed any museum, is the musical instrument section. All those poor, dead instruments locked up behind glass, never able to speak again. An instrument, if it is playable, should be played, at least once a year, just to keep it alive.

Mind you, how many melodeons can you have in one place without that place undergoing some major implosion or a black hole forming?

Gee, all this talk about burying and not burying your instrument with you, has made me stop and wonder.

I guess there should be some type of criteria for deciding whether your instrument gets to live on or is buried with you. I always thought I would take my first autoharp with, but now I'm not so sure. It qualifies to go with me because it is an OLD black harp with a crack in the top, I'm sure no one would dig me up to get it. but on the other hand it also qualifies to stay because it is still playable, (and it knows all the songs).

What to do!! What to do!! Maybe I'll just ask it what it wants to do. Or maybe I'll just send it to the Mudcat Retirement Village. I like that idea.

I have always thought that I don't own my instruments, most of em are over a hundred years old, I am just keeping them for who ever comes next. But I am reminded of a story I got from another piper, Mike McQuade, a reliable sourse for missinformation, so if anyone can confirm the story, please do...
Michael Commba O'Sullivan was an Uilleann piper who lived in three centuries. He was born in the 1790s and died in about 1915 or so, he lived long enough to be recorded on an edison wax cylindar. Well, at his death he begged a friend to make sure his pipes were burried with him. They were, but his friend was a piper, and as time passed, he could not bear the idea of those pipes down there with Michael, so after a few weeks, he dug him up and took the pipes back. According to McQuade, they are the flat set (C set) Liam O'Flynn plays on the Planxty album Well Below the Valley...
A warning about being burried with your instrument, so if you got to go with a set of pipes, make sure they are Tim Briton pipes, so no one will make the effort to dig them up... (no offence Tim... your a lovely nice guy, your pipes look nice, but your no Seth Gallagher!)

Praise--I have given instruments to those children and there is no better feeling in the whole world.....

Barbara Shaw--I hope I don't have 32 grandchildren; can you give them away like puppies?

Jeri--Are you sure he is your brother? I thought he was mine..........

Serious--I did inherit my mom's viola. I dont' play it much, but I do play it. My nephew was to get it if he continued lessons, but he did not. If he ever really does play viola at all, I will give it to him. If somebody only wanted my instruments for a Curiosity Collection (a la MacPherson in Mbo's post) I just might smash them. Instruments are meant to be played, not admired. That is why I have sold cheap and given away several in my life. I just want someone to be able to have the music, like I have. It has made such a big difference in my life. Saved my life more like, the year I was "nursing my mom to death". And, reference the other thread, NO, I could never give up the music.

I was given a gibson tenor guitar once. I kept it awhile, but it filled the same slot my octave mandolin does, so I gave it to an old timey musician friend with the tale. I said then, considering it was given to me, I didn't feel I should sell it, but pass it on. It has since changed hands a least twice more, with the story and no money exchanged.

I recently gave a guitar to a 9-year-old girl whose house was burned out, and she said in the newspaper article that what she missed most was her guitar that she was just learning to play.

Also gave a viola to a 5th grade boy who wanted to be in the strings program in school but couldn't afford to rent an instrument.

I'm hoping to have 32 grandchildren someday, so we can pass on all of our 32 remaining instruments. I would love to teach my (future) grandchildren how to play piano, guitar, bass, fiddle. Just might hide the banjos, though and let the next generation wonder what to do with them!

Seriously, this thread has prompted me to consider things. My younger son is a musician and would no doubt make use of many of the instruments, but the rest should be given to people who will play them. These instruments know lots of tunes, and they shouldn't stop with me.

OK, those are great answers.

But how about giving them to me?

OK, OK.

How about giving them to Mudcat to auction for Max? (Mudcat's going to be around forever, right???)

Screw that Save the Music program, where people turn in new stuff they bought and decided was too much trouble to play, or the old dried out thing that was Granny's priceless violin before little grandson Jake stuck it in the hot dry attic under ther sled runner! And I have no idea how the program really works, but do the kids who get the instruments get to keep them or does the school? And do the kids have to sit still for boring, pedantic lessons when they should just get to discover?

Save the Mudcat, more like it! Put them into Catters' hands, where we will do some real good with them!

Or give them to a child whose eyes light up when you let them hold it after your set... give them your old beat-up instrument that would only get you $50 anyhow when you trade up....

Mine? I dunno. I trust Hardi to do whatever would be right.

(The amps-- that's different! I'm taking mine! Heaven is WAY too big for purely acoustic!)

This has been a good thread, and poses a question I have thought about. My two older boys play guitar, and I would expect a grandchild or two (if they ever come) to have an interest. As it stands, our 3 sons will inhereit whatever we have, evenly, and they will sort it out ... but I would very much like to see that the instruments wind up in the hands of one who will appreciate them.

Gervase - I'm sorry but my thoughts are with your SO on this one.... and I share a house with 8 of the buggers, so she should think herself lucky.....

SO has willed all his to Cecil Sharp House so they become their problem, except the matchstick fiddle (unplayable) that his uncle made, that matches (sorry) the one in the Byany and May (matchstick makers [as opposed to matchmakers]) museum.... That goes to the bratling, who will probably try to play it like a drum if past performances are anything to go by. However, she has expressed an interest in playing the piano..... I live in hope, cos I can't get my head round the damned thing!!

Mine I guess will just be packed off along with his, unless he goes first and I get a few weeks grace for a ruddy big ritual bonfire......... there are two piano accordions in there and they burn for ages!

Actually the real life MacPherson, after claiming that no one should play his fiddle after his death, and that they mod who can to see him die only wanted to buy it as as something to brag on, and not to play, he broke the fiddle over the hangman's head and lept off the gallows himself...

After dusting off the box at the weekend for a practice, I think I know what'll happen to my three-row after I die.
As mentioned in an earlier thread, my SO isn't as fond as she might be of the box. She made her feelings clear again and muttered darkly about what she'd like to do to the instrument.
Thus, when I'm dead and gone, I know the pathologist will have to spend a good hour with a proctoscope before crunching up my beloved box with forceps to remove it from my arse, and a Hohner DGA Corona will become good for nothing!

I'm always grateful to whoever gave a guitar to a cancer charity shop where I found it and nursed it back to health. I sometimes wonder what it's history was - it had plainly been played a lot at one time, and then not looked after too well at all. And now it's a joy to play. (And the picture's in the Mudcat Rogues Gallery.)

What'll happen after I've gone? It'll have a good home, but just where depends on how long I last.

Neither of my children have shown any interest in instruments. One is 21, the other 15 so I don't think there is hope. At least Kate sings. I can't imagine burying a decent fiddle.........

I think I will probably give them away when I can't play anymore, and if I go too suddenly to do that, my family has instructions to donate them to a school, etc.

My books, esp. the Celtic research collection and tune collections are going to the local library to shelve or sell as they see fit. No one at my house is interested in them.

Good thread, Marion. Maybe we will all get some good ideas out of it.
