I of course have decided on a Bow Diddley.

Trying to use what is in the shed and
Found an old old box and bamboo torch.

How much of the sound is transfered through
the arm is my first question?

Also has anyone thought of using bluetooth
Technology to send the sound to a tv soundbar?

Appreciate any comments!

Post a sound clip,please. Let us hear you diddly torch :-)
Have not put it together.
Wanted to know if the bamboo will work. Lol
I will have to drill holes for the bamboo
And use a good glue to bond them to the box

I was thinking of removing the cover
and turning it over as the
inside picture is real nice.
Regards
Ok, made my first Bow Diddley!

Bamboo torch arm with 5cent cigar box.
Tunbuckle at lower end for adjusting tension.
Stainless coat hook at top end.
Bamboo stub shaped to fit on upper arm where bolt goes.
Small piece of ply for bridge.

Picture hanging braded wire for stringing.
Clear sound.
