New Workshop

Good news! Last week I got the all clear from the hospital after a dire summer of chemotherapy. :) It will take a little while to get back into the full swing, but I am feeling so much better than I did a few short weeks ago.

So, in celebration, we have moved into a new workshop. The units in the Craft Village at Quex Park are _IAN1998great, but somewhat restrictive in both size and facilities. The new workshop, which is still on the Quex Estate,  albeit just outside the Park proper, is around 4 times the size of the old unit and has a full power supply rather than the shared one endured by the villagers.

Due to the recent treatment, it has taken a little while to get the place up and running, but, as you can see from the images, things are now pretty much in place and we are back in production.

New Models

Following on from the new Soprano that we announced in the summer, we now have a concert sized version that has proved to be just as punchy with great tone.

We have also developed a brand new instrument that we have called a Cellele. You might describe it as a Bass Baritone. It has a voice in the same register as an orchestral ‘cello. It is tune identically to a normal Baritone Ukulele with the exception that it is a full octave lower. Here is a quick sound sample of the instrument playing along with a standard baritone.

It is equipped with all nylon wound strings, built in 2 band EQ and pre-amp (although the sound sample is being played acoustically) and is available either fretted or fretless. Launch price, valid to the end of January 2014, is just £380.

I’ll sort out some images, and perhaps a video shortly!

To find us now, you still aim for Quex Park, but drive around the outside of the park (follow the tree-line) to the junction of  Manston Road and Shottendane Road and 70 metres from the junction, in Shottendane Road, you will find us alongside Bruk’s Tree Surgery and Chainsaw Carving Centre.

Take a look at our opening hours and call in for a coffee and chat. We look forward to seeing you.
