Teton is a new line of guitars conceived in Idaho and manufactured in China. The quality of what one gets for the price in these instruments is remarkable. This GC model comes in a solid cedar top or spruce top version. The craftsmanship has been impeccable in these intruments. All wood binding and rosette, bone nut and saddle, intonated. Very playable out of the box and decent tone. Hard to go wrong for $349.
A solid sapele top and back, this dulcimer has a 2.5 octave range tuned in 5ths.
These instruments have to be played to truly appreciate their unique and beautiful sound. Here is a link to one of my favorite Canadian musicians, Ian Tamblyn, who has composed many original songs on hammered dulcimer.
Comes with a hardboard case, tuning wrench, table leg, hammers and instruction/care manual.
This model features an accurate replica of the vintage and highly sought after 3-part White Ladye tone ring coupled with a 1/2″ rim for maximum air chamber volume.
Maple neck and bound ebony fingerboard with MOP cloud inlays and frailing scoop.
Double adjusting truss rod.
Vintage heel design.
Fairbanks-style headstock shape.
GT Master planetary tuners.
11” Renaissance head.
Dual coordinator rods.
Classical guitarist Daniel Bolshoy visited the shop briefly after playing a concert the night before with Jasper Woods at the Kaslo United Church. This unforgettable concert was intense, beautiful and humorous.
Their concert and several others per year of this calibre are arranged by the Kaslo Concert Society.
Rumour has it that Daniel will be visiting in the summer for a masterclass teaching workshop, stay tuned!
On January 30th,TMO played at the BlueBelle Bistro in Kaslo, BC. Fantastic show of the usual intimate nature.
Sweet natured set of fellas, including the accordion player, who, as you can see here, is a real leprauchan.
I took this photo during a visit to Mtn Fruit, in which the permanent glow of sharing their music is witnessed, as well as Ian, the accordion player, asking Kurt, the guitar player, why the rest of the band is out of focus. Leprauchan phenomena I reckon.
A few days after David Woodhead was in Mtn Fruit, Seattle based musician Michael Guthrie was in for a visit. Michael was instrumental in saving the Langham Theatre and ran the The Village Green cafe with his wife Dare in the 70’s. You can read a little about these endeavours on Michaels website.
Michael remembered taking a bass lesson with David Woodhead and the ‘Island’ benefit concert for the Langham at the Kaslo arena.
