SHRINK KITTEN - Handmade by Thorsten

Hi, I'm Thorsten.

I started building CBGs in Feb 2011 when I had to run a school music project that combined instrument production, playing and history.

So I came to CBGs. I've been absolutely fascinated by those instruments on the CBN site. Since then I have built some slide-guitars, a ukulele bass and currently work on different instruments like Ukulele Bass, dulcimer, soprano and baritone uke etc.

I'm singer/songwriter in two bands/projects: SUGIMUGI and TRICKSTER FLINT.

Shrink Kitten is the name of my cigar box instrument production line or "brand name". All instruments have cat's names so far. I use boxes which I get for free from local shops but I've also started to make my own boxes.

Torsten I am using the three top strings of a regular acoustic guitar but I am turning them down with the top string to a B then the second string would be an E and then the third string would be an A hopefully this will reduce the bow in the bass guitar Thanks for your interest Mike

Hallo Thorsten, zu deiner Anfrage, ob Slide oder bundiert - also beides, da ich gewöhnt bin, mich an den Bünden zu orientieren. Übrigens, habe einen kurzen Bericht über meinen Yamaha THR Amp im Forum geschrieben. Absoluter Hammeramp mit natürlichen (simulierten) Röhrenamps. Falls es dich interessiert, kann ich dir das Teil mal vorstellen.

Hoi Thorsten, ein CBG-player in Nenzing. Das ist ja echt cool. Ich warte noch auf meine 1. GBG, die ich von ChickenboneJohn auf meinen Wunsch anfertigen lasse. Hoffentlich taucht das Ding bald auf, da kann ich mal auf einer 3-saitigen Kiste rumhobeln. Werde wohl etwas üben müssen - haha.

Schöne Grüße, Willi
