This is a thread that you can ask questions about what kind of gear I, or anybody else uses. You can talk about what you use and tell us why you think it's great. Maybe it's a new product out on the market that you want to let us all know about. Please, enlighten us! I am going to talk about my new violin. I'm working on purchasing a Frederich Wyss from Eastman Music Company. I currently work for them as a violin sales associate and I found a wonderful violin that I think I am going to buy./ I'd been practicing on it, trying it out and I left the boxwood shoulder rest on there, incase I didn't like the violin after a few days. Well, I decided I did and switched over to a my old
Hey everyone! I hope you are all doing well! We are finally completely open for business! The videos are being added regularly so keep yourself in touch by checking in. We are going to add a couple more things to the site over the coming weeks. First, there will be a new opening video that will walk you through signing up for the All Access membership. Second, there will be a newer, nicer welcome page for all of you when you sign in.
