I visited the Berlin Musical Instrument Museum at the beginning of December last year. I’d never been before, but I do love to visit museums of this kind. Whilst for the most part it was largely concerned with traditional instruments, it did have a little corner tucked away for electronic instruments, and that was nice. Not huge by any means, but nice.
Overall it was a fun place to visit, although, unlike some similar museums, I probably wouldn’t go again.
You just can’t beat a good stand. Something to put an instrument on, to make it easier to access. However, not all sounds are made equal. This is a ukulele stand I got for Christmas. I always prefer something made in wood rather than metal or plastic, and this has a very natural and organic feel to it. Plus, it works well as a stand.
But this is part 1 for a reason. Because there are instruments that you can’t find stands for, and in those situations you have to try something different. That’s for part 2.
I have to say that I’ve been waiting for this for a long time now and I’ve excited to see what it’s finally like in the flesh or so to speak. It’s been a long time coming, but they’ve been good at keeping in touch with what they’ve been doing and how they’re getting on, and I’ve appreciated that a lot.
You can certainly expect some posting and thoughts from me when it finally does arrive.
This was an excellent recommendation, and one I think I might need to get to a few times. I’ve never been to the Musical Museum at Kew Bridge, and up until a few days ago, I’d never even heard of it! It sounds (pun intended) like somewhere I should be very well acquainted with, so my plan is to sort that out very soon.
When I have, expect pictures, over enthusiasm etc!
It’s great news and very well deserved in my opinion. I’ve been in touch with Artiphon for a long time now and I’m a big fan of what they’re doing and also very much about how they’re going about it too.
They’ve been very sensible in terms of how they’ve responded to feedback about the Instrument 1 and I think that they’ve made a lot of good choices about how to react to users and the wider community. I think that’s very much reflected in the success that they’ve had in this campaign
