How have you expanded your client
Word of mouth has been our best salesman. It's great to see
(LEFT) custom- repeat customers and
made 13-string hear about referrals. Our
website and Instagram
The Nite Cat and
presence have begun
to increase awareness,
and we're fortunate to
have two outstanding
dealers here in the area,
The Fretted Frog, in Pasadena, and Kaye's
Music Scene, in Reseda.
What are your goals for the business?
We'd like to keep broadening awareness of the lap-steel, generally, and of
our instruments, specifically. Our goals
include getting them into the hands of the
next generation of players, who we hope
will integrate lap steel into a range of musical
formats and styles. When I see the reaction of
young players as they're exposed to the tonal
and textural possibilities of a lap steel, it's great
to see that light go on and the smile spread.
