WISHBASS – Unit 201
By using mostly domestic woods, innovative design and traditional methods, I can offer great sounding guitars of many types, harp guitars, the entire mandolin family and even upright basses at prices that are twenty percent of price of the Boutique Instruments. Guitars and Mandolin Family instruments start at $300.00, Harp Guitars at $600.00, and Uprights at $1,200.00
I have been making guitars and other instruments since 1973, when I apprenticed to David A. Sturgill of Piney Creek, North Carolina. There I studied alongside Wayne C. Henderson, Kyle Creed, and Albert Hash, in an intensive experience that included full immersion in Appalachian Culture and Music.
After leaving Sturgill in 1977, i moved to Middle Tennessee, and opened my first shop, experimenting with design and use of domestic woods.
I worked for nearly two years for Ovation Instruments where I studied guitar physics with James A. Ricard, their Chief engineer and Seth Hedu a second generation Jazz guitar maker.
Returning to Tennessee, i finalized some designs, then moved to Winston Salem NC, where i continued to work in the Furniture Industry and make guitars until 2001 when i opened Wishbass.com to make Fretless Electric Basses for sale.
Wishbass has achieved a worldwide reputation for honest worth and great tone.
I also continue to make guitars, mandolins and basses for the working musician
Chads Chai Tea – Unit 211
People have gathered together over food and drink since our beginnings. It’s part of who we are. We’re meant for community, for sharing life with each other. And so we hope our teas might be more than enjoyed, but that they would also be opportunities for sharing, for community.
Years back, Chad was introduced to Indian style chai through some neighbors, who would have a monthly chai party and invite all their friends. A large pot sat steaming on the stove, filling the whole house with amazing spice aroma as they played music, games, and hung out. To Chad, it was magical. He began to try his own hand at blending Indian spices with tea and milk, and started making pots of it for gatherings of friends. Not long after that, Chad began having a weekly chai-on-the-porch time with his friend "Zoo" (which has continued almost every Friday for over 10 years.) Zoo was getting married, and asked Chad to make a pot of chai for the wedding, and also to make little tea-bags as party favors. At that point, they decided to start selling it.
Sometime in the next few months, Zoo and Chad were playing a game of poker, and a man began speaking of opening an Irish restaurant, and wanting to carry good tea. Everyone pointed down the table at Chad. That night, he asked Chad to be his "Tea Man," and the restaurant would become Finnigan's Wake Irish Pub and Kitchen in downtown Winston-Salem, the 1st business to start serving Chad's tea. Now, Chad's Chai is served in over 50 coffee shops and restaurants and continues to bring friends together in magical ways.
Hooz Audio – Unit 209
Om Hauser started out doing sound engineering as a senior in high school, recording his high school band concerts on a Yamaha AW4816 bought without his parents permission off Ebay. Realizing how much fun music recording was, Tom went to Ithaca College and earned a Bachelor's of Music in Sound Recording Technology, graduating in 2008. Tom recorded over 150 concerts in his four years at Ithaca in a state of the art recording facility using recording gear by SSL, Benchmark, Universal Audio, Eventide, Neumann, Sennheiser, Genelec, and Pro Tools. Tom studied sound engineering with Alex Perialas and Brian Dozoretz, gentlemen with Platinum and Grammy credits to their names. Tom interned in Nashville Tennessee at Georgetown Masters on Music Row, and produced recordings of blue grass, jazz, funk, and rock his senior year.
Coming back to North Carolina after graduating, Tom entered the world of film sound, making a name for himself in the independent film scene in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. Mixing and editing in post, Tom came to realize that the music for film wasn't nearly as difficult to write as many of the classical works he played and studied. Tom found former LA music editor Mike Andreas (living in Cary, NC) on craigslist.org, and started studying film scoring in his spare time. By the fall of 2011, Tom was a graduate student at UNC School of the Arts, earning his MFA in Film Music Composition. Guest artist visits from the likes of Tim Starnes, Heitor Pereira, and Kris Carter, plus work with UNCSA Chancellor John Mauceri, former Hollybowl Conductor, made for a rich experience in the only film scoring program in the USA integrated into a film school. Tom also studied with Jay Gallagher (sound mixer on the Ocean's 11 movies) and Wade Wilson (sound editor on Shrek, Madagascar, and many others) to keep his sound engineering chops up to snuff.
In his free time, Tom enjoys yoga, drinking tea, singing with the Palmetto Voices, camping, outdoor recreation, and spending time with friends. Tom loves talking about music, sound, and life to anyone who loves intelligent conversation, especially over chai.
Group Ride - Winston-Salem, NCBeersNGears is a cycling advocacy organization which wants more people to ride bikes. We have been blogging about all things bike and beer for several years, and now we want to be more involved in our local community — the foothills of North Carolina.
BeersNGears provides people with the tools and resources necessary to empower them to ride. From educating cyclists on basic bike maintenance and riding best practices, to working with local municipalities to introduce and enforce legislation, advocating for more bike infrastructure, and partnering with local businesses to promote bike-friendly features for customers and employees.
We’re cultivating culture by putting on the best bicycle events Winston-Salem has ever seen, connecting business owners and local leaders with their communities, supporting innovators, artists and other local talent and encouraging individuals to discover and engage within their community, all while living our passion — riding bikes.
What’s beer got to do, got to do with it?
Beer breaks down an illusion, that to be an adult and ride bikes means that you need to wear spandex and train for some kind of race, or be in a perpetual fundraising mode to participate in cycling events. These kinds of misconceptions can keep people from exploring cycling as an adult. We’re here to help people discover that anyone can get on a bike and ride; even if its is just for dinner and drinks with friends!
About the Founder
Jake Easter learned his love for bikes when his Dad took him to the BMX track for the first time at the ripe old age of 13. It was love at first sight and this love for BMX grew into a love of dirt jumping and freestyle. He was lucky to have been around a lot of greats when learning to ride. From Dave Mirra to Ryan Nyquist and even the original Matt Hoffman. At some point he decided he needed to do something to be in better shape, to be better at freestyle and dirt jumping, of course. Enter Mountain Biking. Using mountain biking as a training tool led to racing and racing led to a need to ride road bikes. So he could ride his mountain bike further and faster; to be better at freestyle and dirt jumping, of course. Fast forward 12-or-so years and he doesn’t ride freestyle any more, but still claims to ride road bikes so that he can ride mountain bikes further and faster as well as developed a love for the utility a bicycle can provide.
When he started working, it only made sense to work at a bike shop. He has done everything from take out trash to management. He did spend most of his time as a mechanic though. Jake’s Mom did always say he had a high mechanical aptitude. Whatever that means.
His personal stable consists of a ’08 Gary Fisher Ferrous and a ’97 Bianchi Eros.
