the latest news for October 2016

3. Since June 2016 I am working on a project called “ The Peace Trail Tapes”, 5 singles are planned, I wrote the lyrics and music to 3 songs by today, they are already pre-recorded. They are all different songs about “Peace”… I wonder if I should record them just playing alone or invite some friends to do it together, will see…, but want to keep it as simple as possible with the instrumentation, I want to do it the way I played 40 years ago, just me and my guitar…, we will see and I will let you know...  

2. here is an old guitar from my guitar collection, ca. 1850/60, made by German violin and guitar builder J. Padewet of Karlsruhe, nut, bridge pins etc. are still made out of ivory those days for high price guitars and so is this one, he was also manufacturing Violins, Cellos, up-right Basses etc...

Johann (I) Padewet was a self-taught, skilful maker of violins and guitars as well as other stringed instruments; he died about 1872/74. He started his business in Basle, 1844, but moved to Carlsruhe (Baden) in Germany in 1846. He was appointed Court instrument maker by the Grand Duke of Baden. His awards: at Münich Exhibition 1854; Paris 1855; Carlsruhe 1861; London 1862; Paris 1867 and Freiburg 1871.

The business last until June 30th 2012 in Karlsruhe in the 5th Generation! All the years the address was always the same, Kaiserstrasse 132 in Karlsruhe.

the latest news for May 2016

we are preparing for our travels in May for heading to Europe, so we are pretty busy fighting with airlines regarding guitar shipments and pricing of course etc.. if you are a musician and have to travel by air you are always in trouble, all companies are greedy for profit, but they don’t care about your instruments…

In the US The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Modernization & Perform Act of 2012 says : “An air carrier providing air transportation shall permit a passenger to carry a violin, guitar or other musical instrument in the aircraft cabin without charging the passenger a fee in addition to any standard fee that carrier may require for comparable carry-on baggage…” since Feb 6th 2014 effective!
