Production Update [Video] - Factory Tour
After an 'educational' trip to visit our manufacturing facility in Dongguan city in December 2018, I came away with a bit more knowledge about what it means to be a manufacturer in China, or maybe I should say to own a company that manufactures in China. It was certainly a steep learning curve, and presented all sorts of challenges that required consideration, consultation (with Ed, the previous owner of DUKE who accompanied me to China) and ultimately solutions.
Despite the issues, it was an enjoyable 6 days that produced a top notch batch of 300 DUKE10 Tenor Banjoleles that I am proud of. I look forward to the next trip sometime in mid to late 2019.
Here is a video of me walking through the factory and talking about some of the processes you see.
