  1. I m not going to pretend to be unbiased about Jim McKean, since I own two of his cellos and play on one of them every day I also don t have anything to add that other reviewers haven t commented on This is indeed a rare look inside the world of cello making, and Jim has a way with words that makes you keep reading The only thing missing is that I wish each of you could hear what Jim does to an instrument.why is that still not possible with an e book There s one passage in particular where Jim de [...]
