Anyway I got use my new Peeler fife and mano man it was beautiful.
it has officially become alpha fife ..it was nice and loud and played nice
with others. was weeping with joy thanks
Somebody on this list is making an absolutely perfect reproduction of the
fife sold by the Firth and Pond Company at their Franklin Square
establishment a few years before the WBS. The one I am holding in my hand
looks exactly as it would have when it was brand new and sold in 1847 or 48.
I am amazed by the dedication to historical detail as well as the meticulous
workmanship and glass-like natural oil finish. What a pleasure to own such
a gorgeous instrument!
A thousand thanks for your friendship--oh, yeah, and the fife, too! :-)
Thanks so much for sending the fife, I received it on Monday - wow,
it's really a beautiful piece of work ! When I picked it up I immediately
noticed the difference between your fife and the maple one I ordered from
Jas. Townsend - your fife is much heavier. The Townsend fife feels like a
piece of balsa wood compared to yours!
