We all need a little rythm. This is a small box with a tailpiece “clacker” to achieve what I wanted to be a snare/rimshot type sound. (Something for beats 2 and 4). You could use a bigger box for the…Continue

I would like to build a cigar box banjo for my next build. I’ve seen people place small tambourines with a skin head and bells removed inside the box in the same place you would put a reso cone. But…Continue

"I recently saw a post where Wishnevsky puts the piezo on the rim/hoop of his banjo's., Shane recommended adding a pre-amp., I have heard banjo players say don't put the piezo on the head, as it will feedback and sound like crap.,"

We all need a little rythm. This is a small box with a tailpiece “clacker” to achieve what I wanted to be a snare/rimshot type sound. (Something for beats 2 and 4). You could use a bigger box for the right foot for a bass sound but I use my cajon.  It’s a quick and easy build with...of course endless add-ons, as goes with Cigar Box instruments.See More

"Hi Jeremy, here are some pic's of the style of banjo I build. The tin one [only photo I have] has a cross brace in the bridge area. The wood top banjo has a thin tone wood Cedar top so I brace it with an X bracing pattern. I think I over braced…"

"Thanks for the advice, a pre amp pedal is not something i thought of. I may try a wood top banjo now instead, I like idea of that. That banjo/mandolin looks really nice! A CB-mandolin is something I’ve always been interested in building. I…"

"Hi Jeremy, try adding a preamp to the pick up either on board or as  pedal. If you mounted one in a small box {pedal style] you could use it with your other banjos. I have built a number of wood top banjos and the sound of these is a bit more…"

Pickup for cigar box banjo

I would like to build a cigar box banjo for my next build. I’ve seen people place small tambourines with a skin head and bells removed inside the box in the same place you would put a reso cone. But what style pickup should be use. I’ve have bad luck trying to use a piezo in my banjo and banjolele but it sounds like crap.Any suggestionsSee More

Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
i first discovered the CBG while watching the reality tv show with ozzy osbourne and his son jack on a road trip around the usa. one episode featured a cigar box guitar and i was hooked ever since. doing a small amount of research i discovered this site.

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
what i found to be most interesting about the cigar box guitar is the the "trash to treasure" factor, but what first drew me in was how good the sound was from this little box. i played guitar for many years in my youth but stopped playing for a period in my late 20's. The cigar box guitar captivated me and revitalized my passion for music. it also inspired me to create my own music. just because of the way it sounds and the ways i can string/tune it, i find it to be really inspirational
