No, not too hot. Just right but the bag wall over time starts slumping toward the flame path. The old bag wall was leaning in causing a pinch in the flame. The pinch causes too much turbulence in part of the kiln causing boiling Shino glaze. The boil cools as craters in the glaze and roughness for a slide. Me and Pete replaced the wall with new bricks. This is the first firing with the fix. We’ll see. :*)

Andries, I would definitely trust strings made in Mexico than made in China,Mexico is a next door neighbor to California, so better quality control

Hi Andries, thanks for your comments. Your horsehead git looks great! Your way using cigarette tin under bridge is intresting, I might try it too, so to find some use for small tins...

Hi Andries. Thanks for the Yellow mellow fellow. I’m liking it for sure. Glad you don’t mind my mod stripes. I’m lost without them. Thanks for the interior view. 3 peizos! They Rock! They each look different. I’ll be playing Yellow a lot. :*) ... thanks giving... Dave

Thanks so much  for the kind words,ny brother.I think it's beautiful that we can play together  with different syles.I've always loved your stuff and your approach to it.You have always been a great source of inspiration ,both as a musician and listener.I'm luckier than most to be fairly prolific,so I have more music just sittin around as most.I'm glad that we can put our music together to be shared,because if it is,'nt shared then its just camping out in a folder somewhere.that seems like a  waste.I appreciate yer energy and I'm sure this won't be the last of our collabs...Love peace and chicken grease
