Traditional Irish Music
I hope you are all enjoying 2016! I wanted to know if anyone in this group owns or has played a Lawrence Nyberg bouzouki. I've been looking to upgrade from the cheap Luna that I've been playing for the past four and a half years, and Ive recently been in touch with Lawrence Nyberg. He is located on the west coast in British Columbia, Canada, and I am in Buffalo, NY, so it's impossible to see/play any of his pieces before I commit to an order. I've tried a couple other luthiers, but their waiting list is quite long. Nyberg has a couple zouks nearly completed that are not under commission, so they're not spoken for already.
Just looking for another opinion.
Hey Liam. Hope all's well.
As far as a Nyberg, does he have a website, or better yet, a YouTube video where you can listen to and watch someone play it. Never heard of him myself and I'm hoping I'm not being a Captain Obvious. Check if he has any reviews. I also have a Luna, and although I have sentimental attachment to this, my first zouk, I'm emotionally ready to upgrade though not financially. Good luck. Keep us posted.
Hey Liam. Any news on that NYBERG Zouk????
He makes nice instruments. Not to mention, the USD to CAD exchange rate was very favourable last time I checked, and the same goes for New Zealand.
Congrats! I'm sure it will be a big step up from the Luna Trinity.
I got it!...It's beautiful and sounds great! Lawrence Nyberg really does some fine work. Here's a link to Facebook post with some pics of my new bouzouki.
