Arne Schlünsen / Roundback Mandola / 1940's / Silk Wood / Stringed Instrument
Musikhuset Odense, Denmark
In these times with a lot of trade moving to the e-comerce, we are moving in the opposite direction. We do not believe that a musical instrument is something you should buy before having it in your hands, to see and feel the chemistry between the instrument and one self.
When we say that we are starting, we ought also to say that there are many years experience underlying this project.
Richard Salsbury was one half of the partnership which took over Instrumentmager A.Andersen in the mid eighties. He is an instrument repairman, with all that this entails. He specializes in Brass-wind, fretted and non-fretted stringed instruments. In addition, Richard is an avid drummer and offert repair, service and tuning of drums too.
Claus Vang, the other half of this duo, is best known in folk Music circles. He plays the Violin, Mandolin and bass guitar.His role is primarily customer service, product ordering and book keeping. He is originally trained in business.
In addition we are fortunate to have the help of Ian Gibson. Ian is a guitarist and keyboard player and works with websites. We hope that Ian eventually becomes a permanent member of Musikhuset Odense.
Common to us all is that we are all passionate music people - who cannot help but do that which we believe important for the music life in Odense, which is to supply and service musical instruments, in Denmark's third largest city. - and of course the rest of the world.
Besides our first class workshop we have a well stocked shop with emphasis on accoustic instruments, but also with some interesting electric guitars and basses.
Whatever instrument you play, we also have a large selection of accessories and spares : from strings, bows and colofon through oils, dampers and cases, to drum skins, sticks and cymbals.
We have the lot.
Come and pay a visit. You won't be dissapointed.
