Mass Street Music staffers Eric M. (at left checking out a guitar’s bracing with Collings’ Alex R.) and Anne T. spent a fantastic day at Collings Guitars in Austin, Texas on Feb. 10 – it was a great experience, meeting not only Bill Collings and seeing the ‘wood whisperer’ Bruce Van Wart again, but also meeting the other folks who make Collings so special and craft the spectacular instruments. The full story of their visit will be featured in our March newsletter with plenty of behind-the-scenes photos.
Pedals – we’ve got ’em – so many in fact we added a second display case! New to the line up this month are Empress Effects and Cusack Pedals, plus we have the new Skreddy Swirl Optical Phaser in which is outstanding.
Remember you’ll find a mini version of Mass Street Music in the Exhibition Hall at this week’s great Folk Alliance Conference & Music Fair in Kansas City, Missouri, plus we’re bringing a lot of Lawrence musicians with us for a special Lawrence KS Live stage on Friday night at the Music Fair. We’ll have info on some special Lawrence institutions like Free State Brewing Company, the Love Garden Sounds and more on hand too. We hope to see you there!
