Occupation: piano tuner
Fiddle, and piano a little. I currently have five fiddles -- 2 nice Chinese Song fiddles for standard tuning, and 3 other old beaters from Germany and the U.S. which I keep for cross tuning.
Too many to list. I'm partial to most fiddle music, old-time to classical, and especially like old-time string bands like the Carolina Chocolate Drops. I also favor ragtime in all forms -- fiddle, string band and piano.

Piano tuner by trade, now semi-retired, and fiddle lover by choice. I've been playing old time fiddle on and off (poorly but persistently) for more years than I care to admit. Always seeking the perfect cheap fiddle, and trying to design a decent cigar box model (I've made three so far, shown on my pictures page).
