MUSICMAKERS VOL. 1
Use the playlist icon in the top left to pick a part or sit back as Simon plays his way through the entire library.
Developed in collaboration with Musicmakers, designers of popular DIY musical instrument kits and music therapy instruments, Musicmakers Volume 1 features 10 folk and world instruments including harp, lyre, mountain dulcimer, mandola, handpan, and more.
Recorded with four mic arrays representing both the finest in modern mic design and vintage tone, these instruments are designed to be highly flexible to fit into nearly any context yet be entirely consistent with each other when used together.
Musicmaker’s core mission is to help people experience satisfaction in building performance quality musical instruments and learning to play them. They first opened in the Spring of 1978 as an unusual hobby store, called St. Croix Kits, offering a variety of do-it-yourself projects for making practical household items such as clothing, clocks, outdoor furniture, kitchen cutlery, and musical instruments.
They now ship their products to enthusiasts around the world, and have become widely known as one of the friendliest sources of creative musical assistance for a wide variety of acoustic instruments.
