I built one & the sound wavered through the pipe like a didgeridoo, does yours do that?
I don't have that problem. The one end with the tuner has a block in it,and the pickup takes up almost all the space at the other end...
I think the wood block remedies that? I flattened my headstock, but didn’t think to angle it, great idea? What are you gonna do for a body? There’s a PVC Bass build video in the Resources tab, he had the same results I did with the wavering sound? Seeing yours makes me want to revisit this, thanx for sharing John, any chance of a sample?
I need to dig out my bass amp, it's buried... give me a week or so. Body? what do you need a body for? :-)
I made one awhile back for the Plumbers Challenge build. 27" scale 3 string Baritone. I used a heavy E string through the back inside as a trussrod and I made the pickup out of the motor coils of a old hand drill. The pickup works, but it doesn't work great.I thought it work like a tubulum or didgeridoo, but not so in mine. Maybe because of the string trussrod. IDK
tubulums have huge pipes to get the low notes... I bet yours just resonates at a much higher frequency...
The pickup isn't strong enough for it and I'll probably change it out some time down the road.
