M. Kloc,
I would like to thank you for your willingness to participate in our
list. We ALL benefit from the information shared with us from performers,
instrument makers/repairers, marketers, scholars, recording artists,
teachers, and students. Through this exchange of ideas, hopefully, not only
will we, as musicians, learn to improve musically, but instrument makers can
get input that might help improve the design of our instruments. Even
though, at times, the exchange may seem a bit "heated", I still believe we
are all working toward the same goals!
Thanks, again, to everyone on this list!
