to musical instrument suppliers and makers, musicians' software, magazines,
books, and luthier supplies. I have concentrated on traditional string,
brass and wind instruments partly because they are my main interest, but
also because I feel they are under-represented on the web. You don't have
to plug into an amp to play good music! By the way, these are not recommendations, just listings for your convenience. Use your own judgment when making a purchase.
Information and Communication for Musicians
Instrument Construction and Lutherie
If you are looking for books about music, musicians, or how to build
a musical instrument, try Amazon. They are my favorite source for books
of any kind. They have also added a new section of classical CD's and videos.
The most recent music books I have bought are:
: Tradition and Technology : A Complete Reference for the Design & Construction
of the Steel-String Folk Guitar & the Classical Guitar
a Bluegrass Mandolin : A Complete Technical Guide
