Last week as part of getting to know better where I now live in Vermont I went to visit the Cooperman fife and drum factory in Bellows Falls. It is only about 11 miles from our home. What a delight to be there and see how they make the rims. There are many just stacked up and awaiting the lathe. There seems a variety of woods, and sizes. They are friendly and helpful. It seems they also make resonators. Their clients include Gibson and Deering and they used to make for Stelling. I was impressed and it looks as if they will help my future projects - All I need now is some necks and flanges!
Enough - off to Peru next week where I will play and not tinker whle learning the language - those who read this and pray - PLEASE do so!

Hi Ian...I didn't realize you had already moved to VT. If you find yourself over this way, please let me know.

Ian (Father Ian?) best wishes and prayers for your mission to Peru. I used to pass through Chester, VT on my way to Manchester, Dorset and Pawlet to fish and hunt- seems like a lifetime ago.
