MESSAGE FROM THE MAMAS

Postby rick » Sat Oct 11, 2008 8:46 pm

Hello:
The MAMAs have been very busy all summer establishing new programs and revising our website and processes.

Soon you will receive a notice about registration opening for the 2009 Madison Area Music Awards and a monthly newsletter will also begin in October.

In the meantime, we are looking for instrument donations for specific and general purposes and are turning to our membership and supporters. As you know, we are a 501 ( c) (3) organization, which means that any cash or instrument donation to us qualifies for an income tax deduction for you.

We are looking for the following for these specific requests:

O’Keefe Middle School
-bass guitar and amplifier to replace their non-functioning gear for their jazz band.

Oregon School System
-six alto saxes
-three clarinets
-two flutes

East Madison Community Center
- acoustic and electric guitars
- bass guitars
- amps
- drums of all types

Centro Hispano
- drums of all types

Instrument donations of any kind (or cash!) are always gratefully accepted.

Any instruments donated should be in working order. You can reply to:

Ed Larson from Edtronics has just informed me that he is willing to do some repairs on any donated gear (within reason, of course). So if you have something that may need some minor repairs and Ed can handle it, we will gladly take it.

Rick - sent an email with a bunch of bass gear I can donate. Also - I have some PA gear that I'd trade to others for items on the donation list of somewhat comparable worth:

Crown XLS202 and XLS402 amps
Mackie 1402VLZ mixer
SKB Gig Rig with power conditioner


Or what about a musician swap - with the opportunity to donate to MAMA? Have a bunch of bass pedals I'd swap for items to donate, or sell for donation to MAMAS - for instruments and gear for kids.

Thanks to those who have come forward to donate some of these needed items.

We've got the bass gear except for a head, still need that.

One sax has been donated, we're looking for five more.

Guitars are also needed.

Thanks,

Rick - MAMAs

Thanks,

If someone has a spare head, but hesitant to donate - I'd be happy to trade bass effect pedals for a decent, functioning 100 to 150watt head to throw Rick's way. Can negotiate something with the following:

-Tech 21 Bass Sansamp D.I.
-Digitech XBS Bass Squeeze Compression
-Digitech XBW Bass Synth Wah
-Snarling Dog Bass Wah-Wah
