Jim Wells is donating this charming zither!

Don Maclane, local and brilliant engineer/inventor, is donating some of his work. He writes, “Here is a batch of carbon fiber shafted (way stiffer than Sam’s) hammers that I will bring for the circus.” Don’s referring to Sam Rizzetta’s carbon fiber shafted hammers.

Don is referring to some somewhat floppy carbon fiber shafted hammers that our genius and dear friend Sam Rizzetta brought to the ‘Vous. Sam, always a pioneer in hammer dulcimer design, did a lot of great experimentation with carbon fiber. (The carbon fiber strips in the long rails of my Dusty Strings D670 work wonders at helping the hammerbox hold it’s tune!)

Jason Hoover is bringing a 10X15 inch metal print of his photograph!
Music Boxes donated by Mishele Mennett

John Shader is donating a quartet (octet?) of hammers!
Colville is donating a pound fresh (roasted just a couple weeks ago!) Kona coffee!
Jason Foy has donated these Low Whistles: 
Howard Low C – nice mellow tone, reach not too bad for a C.  Came from a “seconds” batch, very minor cosmetic flaws but still plays perfectly. 
Howard Low D – good workhorse whistle!  Purchased around 2000, and played heavily since.  Fipple was replaced around 2016 with a newer design from the maker.  
Nightingale Low E whistle by Alexander Karavayev – Decent whistle, good volume and tone, but above average air requirements.  Non-tunable model.  

Jason has also donated this mandolin from Lark in the Morning, doesn’t remember the maker. Celtic style mandolin, not very loud, but pretty good sustain.  Would make a good starter or travel instrument.
