"Ramson, I assume you're talking about a rod piezo rather than a disc? Second question, are you running it through a pre-amp? My understanding (limited experience with them at this point) is that the rod piezos need a pre-amp. Either way though,…"
"John Sawyer's advice is very good. If you play sitting down especially, I think that approach sets you up for a comfortable playing position too. I have a similar sized box, intending to build it as a resonator with a layout pretty close to…"
"I think you could still put a radius on it but personally I wouldn't do it. That looks beautiful as is, and I'd hate to risk it. Is that bamboo? What are you using for fret markers? Seriously, that's nice work, I'd keep it as is!"

"I can't compete with Shane's 5 string electric, but how about a cigar box Kalimba? Keys are from an old leaf rake, resting on a piece of CB Gitty fretwire and clamped tight under a piece of 6" heavy wall aluminum tubing. …"
"Agree with Rose. As I look at it, if I decided to put holes in it (only after playing it for a bit) I'd probably stay small, maybe two 1" holes plugged with screened grommets in black or a pewter finish (personally not a fan of chrome),…"
"For a given scale length, your nut and bridge absolutely must be separated by that distance (leaving a little wiggle room on the bridge end for intonation adjustment) or your fret spacing for that desired scale length will be completely wrong. If…"
"Lots of possibilities Eston, but I'd create a rectangular frame that fits into the box, and sandwich the nut end of the box between the neck heel and the frame, running the screws from the inside of the frame, through the box end, and into the…"
