Hey there AD. I don't know if you saw my latest video (Ramones cover) but I think you'd dig it. I used a homemade drone box made with video game oscillators for the background noise.

That's a neat and clever thing to do with the copper hinge.  I like the body colout too.  It's very kind of you to say Andries, I have had some very nice comments on my builds... which I greatly appreciate.  I think I need to start building another one ha, ha.

Hello Andries, Thank you for the update.  Sounds like you are nearing completion.  Regards, Bob "Ambrose".

Thanks Andries. She slides like a lounge lizard. Smooth and creamy.

It's a really small one…  the scale is 30cm. The instrument is 60 cm lenght, 20 cm large and 14 cm high at the peg box. The weel is 12 cm diametre.

thanks A.D. this is a six string. short, 23'' scale. i'd like to use heavier strings, but.....may be too tight, standard tuning for a six string short scale? aedgbe? i'll check out your blog, thank you. still need to figure out your hardy curdy thing. i see the buttons on the side, but......it does seem similar to a music box? just need some time to really check it out. i assume the strings are plucked bu those "rods", what is on top that actually plucks the strings? i've wanted to make some sort of git like that. i have to send you some pics of my unusual musical instruments. just hard to contact you. can you send me a message, and i can reply, off the main grid......

Thanks Andries, Much appreciated.  I'm interested to see how your Hurdy Gurdy TURNS out!
