Original Post:

Hello Everybody,

I have been talking to Peter about doing an instrument building workshop in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are discussing schedule, and it looks like late spring early summer is a possibility. Posting this as an interest check to see who would be interested in such a workshop.

Pete suggested building Tocantes - don't know exactly which models would be available but weigh in if you have a preference.

Venue TBD, either East Bay or SF. I imagine cost would be in line with previous SHNTH building workshops, or about 66-75% of the cost of the instrument, but that is TBD depending on attendance, venue and travel costs.

I'll keep a running count of attendees and preferences in this post. I am also going to post this in the Facebook group, so if you're on there, please identify yourself and/or refrain from posting both places.

Thanks!

Bill

UPDATE 2/23:

In speaking to Peter, he said workshop attendees can pick any Tocante they'd like (Karper is sold out through April, but that shouldn't be a problem). Cost may vary slightly by instrument. He mentioned about 75% of retail cost for the DIY workshop with instrument. We are working on a timeframe now.

UPDATE 3/1

It looks like this will be a Summer workshop with the target date moving to June/July per Peter's schedule. Also being discussed are the possibility of adding IFM Modules to the workshop. continuing to work on venues and firm dates.

Update 4/6

We are targeting late June Weekend, working the Venue angle now. More by the end of this week and firm dates soon, hopefully!

I'm extremely interested (Austin on FB here). No preference on Tocante model, but I am interested in building a Tocante.
Madrayken
Say when. (Phashi, ideally, for me)
noisejockey
Super interested. I own a Phashi so maybe one of the newer ones would be fun.
aethersprite
I'm in for sure! Thanks to your demo Bill I'd love to build a Zenert. Or one of the bass ones. Or whatever. thumbs up
kasey
I am in. I would love to build a tenor bistab.
Dirty_Bill
Wow, thanks for the responses. I'l tabulate them soon. Hoping for a dozen attendees, should make it worth everyone's while!
kasey
I think I can vouch for at least 1, maybe two more (who don't frequent this forum).
adammokan
Depending on the date, I'm interested.

Do yo know when you won't be able to attend? send a PM...
sensanalog
Still trying to sort out some details but I might be in.
Dirty_Bill
Thank all - I am going to post this in the Main Events thread as well to see if it gets any more interest. I think the magic number for participation is around a dozen, but I'd like to get that to 16 or so to cover attrition.
windspirit
I mentioned this in the FB group but I am down to carpool with anyone in socal.
pritzcobinger
I might be in. Depends on the date and my travelling plans...
windspirit
Should we vote for which tocante everyone wants to build? I am up for pretty much any of them but the phashi, I love the bendable "nabra" behaviour of the others. Obviously I would still come up to build a phasi but that is my preference.
aethersprite
I'd vote for any one besides phashi too oops

aethersprite
Bravo, Bill! This is gonna be awesome! w00t

noisejockey
Oh yeah, I'm down with Bass Thyris, FWIW.

Me too, probably. Def one of the two bass instruments...
jsu
Wow, lucky me. Just discovered this maker. I'm down. Let me know if you need help locating a venue to host.
aethersprite

Updates to the OP. Looks like early Summer is a more likely timeframe.
