per month
Every so often, I'll mail you a broken string for you to keep as a souvenir. Or throw away on my behalf. Comes complete with original packaging (ziploc bag and awesome pseudo-Baroque label).

[Might take a few weeks to fulfill]
per month
Every so often—more often than the $1 tier—I'll send you a broken E string and its packaging complete with a composed-just-for-you haiku written on the back.
per month
Oh. Gosh. You're serious. Why are you so serious? Does this mean I have to be serious? Okay. Every six months I'll send you an original tune dedicated to you (handwritten sheet music and/or recording of my playing it—your choice). And the $5 reward, just for kicks.




per month


I break E strings like it's my job…even though my job is supposed to be playing on them, not destroying them. This is a not-quite-serious page about a ridiculous problem.
$0 of $20 per month
My E string budget is taken care of when I'm in fiddle-friendly climates!
