Coin picks

Posted on January 21, 2013 at 6:00pm 9 Comments

Has any one tried making these coin picks. I dont know the benifits over nylon but they look cool.  people are asking $10 a pop on ebay for a quarter.  Thought I 'd give it a try today .Fairly easy to do. Start out with a bench grinder , then over the my worksharp to polish them up. I prefer something a little larger so I'll try a dollar coin next. Nickle is a golf ball marker. …

Your choice of string gauges?

Posted on January 5, 2013 at 4:25pm 4 Comments

I tried switching up  things and went to lighter gauge strings. CB GITTY  acoustic/med   13p. 17p.26w. I tune GDG. I use a scale lenght of 25   and 25.5.  The 13 gauge cant get to G without breaking. I normally use 22,30 48 all wound.I 've never had luck with the lighter gauges.I usually buy an extra/light acoustic set and use the 3rd,4th and 5th string.  I tried to go light to get a different sound but it doesnt seem to work.

Thanks for the comment Battman. Turned out better than I thought it would. Sounds pretty good for a 32" piece of 2X4.

Hello - I like your work - very clean! Can you give me some advice on doing a CBUke? I've built several CBG's, and each one has turned out a little better than the one before. I'd like to do a CBUke next. Any build info would be much appreciated! Thanks, Will
