Visit from Guarneri House to UT School of Music

Today we had a wonderful visit from Steven and Aaron Reiley from Guarneri House (Grand Rapids, MI) at the University of Texas. They had a room set up with their basses which had been to TMEA in San Antonio,TX last week.   It’s always fun to try out new instruments and bows, so I had an enjoyable time doing that as well as “talking shop” with Aaron.  One thing I wish, was that we had more bass shops across the United States so that we didn’t have to either travel or wait to until these special opportunities to either get repairs done to our instruments or to try out new basses.
