Artist, wife, friend, lover. Have a look at her wonderful paintings.
Great mate, great player, great recording engineer.
I was lucky enough to play with Victor for a number of years and he is one of the most musical people I have ever met. An inspirational guitar player, a singer with soul, great fun to be with and a special friend.
In my opinion the makers of the best piezo pickup/preamp system in the world. I love them and use them in acoustic guitars, acoustic bass guitars, mandolins and the Blen EUB.
Alessi Machine Heads
Nicolò Alessi makes really beautiful machine heads for steel string and nylon string guitars. I am happy to offer them as an option.
Ken and Dawn
They had the next stand to me at Frankfurt for many years. Each day we supplied the coffee and they supplied the pastries. Ken is responsible for the SpinStrap concept as well as being a maker of electric basses and general clever dick!
Bob operates Tasmanian Tonewoods who supply beautiful native woods that he salvages. His figured blackwood is astonishing.
A great friend, customer and wonderful session/live bass player. Hire him for your album!

A company that make the most amazing inlays in wonderful materials. If you are looking to replicate an inlay pattern they probably have it or they can make whatever you want. Also inlay supplies. A great source and inspiration.
It is a site run by Norman Beberman where very beautiful guitars can be found. He even has some of mine there.
The Blue Book of Guitars

This is run by Hiroshi Hasebe in Japan. If you are into EUBs, this is for you.

A great site for information about musical instruments.
O'Sullivan's Courthouse Pub, Dingle
The only all Traditional Irish music venue in Dingle. Run by our friends Saundra and Tommy O'Sullivan it is dedicated to the 'Pure Drop' in both music, decor, ambience and fluids! The essential place to visit in Dingle if Trad is your thing.
We live in the Maharees near Castlegregory on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. This is an area that is renown for it's natural beauty and rightly so. According to a guide book from the 1920s , Castlegregory is blest with a climate all it's own "as soft as a mother's smile".
Six String Soul
Dan Kern's site is a listing of some of the best makers around. I'm lucky enough to have been included.
Are near neighbours. This area of Kerry has almost perfect conditions for all watersports for all levels of participation. These guys run courses, sell and hire equipment and offer advice.
A local, talented textile artist - beautiful hand woven things.
Kent Armstrong made my magnetic pickups for years and now Aaron his son carries on the tradition. He can hand make custom pickups to any specification and makes the impossible happen! I think I am probably their longest serving customer.
A quality bassplayer and a nice person!
An electric and Blen bassist and a good friend of ours.
A guitar player!
Guitar player, artist and biker!
