The idea... it all started in fall 2010 as a DIY project (see SM-acoustics).
The SCHAMAY founders went to see a concert of "The Reverend Peyton`s Big Damn Band", a three-piece American country blues band from Brown County, Indiana. The Rev plays among others a rusty 1930 steel bodied National guitar.
The dialogue in the aftermath of the concert resumes basically as follows:
"What about jamming Rev style?"
"We`d need a resonator guitar"
"Whaddaya think of building one of our own?"
In the meantime, other musical instruments have also come into focus. Besides dulcimers and banjos, many a ukulele has emerged. We continue, even if we soon don't know where to put all the fine instruments...
So, if you're interested in one, get in touch, it might just be this one that we're thinking of passing on.
