Good Morning all y'all.. Welcome to KosKraft, Issue 11.
This Group is for all those creative kossack artisans, plying away at their benches. If you make things, please join, and maybe give us a look at your work.
After the KraftKloud...
Well, first off, a little brag. As I've told before, I make handles for a Carr Amps, a guitar amp company; thousands of them over the years, in fact. Steve Carr makes an excellent Amp, and he takes pride in the American Craftsmanship. He is a true "support your local businesses" kind of guy, even if that means throwing some work my way!
Their amps get regular reviews in lots of guitar mags, not just about the acoustic aspects of their products, but also the craftsmanship of the box itself. Occassionally, even my little contribution gets noted.
Here's the link to the Carr site, and a pdf of the Vintage Guitar mag review. Not much, but every little bit helps.
Also noteworthy are Carr’s
proprietary handmade leather handle by
Rocky River Leather Company
They use special Govt. issue notebooks in them, and my friends at American Etchworks do the engraving.
Well, that's all for now..
All Kossack Artisans are welcome to join the group, just send me a PM.
In the meantime, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the KosKatalog. They do yeoman's work in there, and it's about at businesss close to supporting "local" as you can get on the inter tubes.
Another crafty place to hang around...
