New Acoustic Gallery newsletter, summer 2011

Oliver Waitze of the New Acoustic Gallery (NAG), in Solingen, Germany, sends the NAG's summer newsletter, with details of some of the good things now in stock.

Instruments include a Bourgeois (USA) OM Cutaway Soloist guitar, a Collings CW Indian A Dreadnought (see photo), the Deering Goodtime acoustic/electric banjo, and Eastman mandolins (A and F style), with accessories ranging from pickup systems by K & K Sound to braided leather mandolin straps, both flat and round, in black, gold, or 'bumblebee'.

Books include Oliver's own recent publications Bach for flatpicking guitar and Bach for mandolin; CDs and DVDs include new releases by Brian Oberlin, David Grisman, and Don Stiernberg (the latter's Swing 220 is now in the NAG) and Jens Kruger's banjo method for beginners. Full details can be seen on the news page of the NAG website.
