Definitely an interesting thought. Next time we look at the Alabaster we might just have a listen and see how it fits in. A little immersed in a bigger project right now and we are trying to stay focussed on it. Bettering the Alabaster is always a good challenge for us so we are up for any interesting ideas as ever. Costs of course can determine the outcome as the Alabaster sits in a sweet spot. Never the less it is an interesting option.
Mind you I have not really experienced the pots going scratchy. Are you in a particular dusty environment?
p.s. thank you the kind comments too.
