What beautiful and unique instruments! Neph, what a wonderful gift!

And BT, gotta disagree with you, Lesley did a fantastic job...she's hired! Golden rule is to always be nice to the camerawoman, she could start filming everything but you if not...

Don't know if this helps, just took a quick look, but you never know...

Brilliant
I think Lesley should do the filming from now on.

By the way who was that man? - I didn't recognise him

Hi Jen...yes, you need to use your ears BUT the BIG question is 'what notes are the strings tuned to?' its not a case of simply being flat b or sharp # or being tuned in concert pitch 440 hz /441 hz its a complicated thing..there are many many variations on tuning...i'll find out though...

I should add Im not starving myself though,I'm not anorexic or bulimic, I eat up to 6 times a day and of course supplement my intake with at least 180 pints of guiness a week... 'hic' anyways...have a great weekend.
