What Musicians are Saying

I wish Case Notes had been around when I first got ol’ Hoss, as many places as we’ve been. I’m glad I have a copy now.

I can think of almost a dozen instruments that I wish I knew the history on, not just who owns them now, but the journey the instruments have been on. For the person interested in the provenance of fine old instruments, opening the case to find Case Notes would be like discovering priceless works long forgotten. I think this could be an invaluable resource.

Every instrument of any value needs Case Notes.

Case Notes… What a GREAT idea!!! I wish I had a Case Notes record of my Loar’s first 86 years. I love knowing that my family will have a record of my history with it from now until I pass it down.
