Emory Joseph here.
I had been playing a Lowden S22 for nearly 20 years, as my primary acoustic and songwriting tool, when I met Miles McKee (Earl of Othenbury) and his lovely wife in Las Vegas -opening for Little Feat at the House of Blues. I had contacted him about needing a part for my older instrument, and he showed up with everything I could have possible needed -including a lovely new Avalon to play if need be.
I met the other Avalon rascals at the NAMM show in Anaheim and,
in addition to the after-effects of a few well placed pints and extreme karaoke performances, came awaywith a brilliant impression of the company - it's abilities, intentions, and most importantly - it's people.
Get to more about Avalon.
The pride they take in doing what they do rubs off.
Excited beyond description for the arrival of my new Avalon!!!
