I've been looking on here, can't find a collection thread anywhere, so I'm starting one.
Show me just how many you all have built over the years.
Show me your Diddley's, your Chuggers, CBG's, Canjos, Banjos, Licence Plates, amps, everything.
Here is Mine, I got Diddley Bows, Diddley Basses, Chuggers, 3, 4 and 5 Stringers, baritones and one that sounds like a banjo and all made from various tins:
Hey all. Im very new to building instruments, I've been messing around in my living room on the weekends for the last few months making toys. Forst thing i made was a walking stick with a diddley bow stuck onto it. Next was this dulcimer for which i disassembled some tea boxes as a soundboard. Since then ive mostly been testing out materials and trying to learn more, so ive developed a pile of semi-functional bizzarities.
thems is some weird builds and I love them. I see you go for the neck on the box and can method instead of inside. I haven't tried on the box with canjos yet do you find it affects the sound of them opposed to inside the box builds?
