Hello everyone, Mark here, founder, imagineer, and ring leader at Saraz.
I am excited to share with you all that over the past several months, I have been training another tuner. He is someone who is among the most dear to my heart and soul. It is my father, affectionately known on the crew as Papa Steve, who is one of the co-founders of Saraz. He joined me not long after I made the very first Saraz prototype and has been an integral part of the project for 6 years now. It is a new and exciting part of our relationship to begin sharing in the challenges and complications of tuning singing Steel. Quite engaging Father and Son bonding to say the least! Although it will likely be a year or two before we will have a Saraz entirely tuned by Papa Steve, we are having a truly wonderful time collaborating on a number of Saraz together as he patiently and persistently evolves into one of the next best tuners on this side of the Galaxy.
