"Great ! The photo is little, but I can see that there are some very special nails that average people don't know the use. It's a pity that all the knowhow will be forgotten. You make a monument to human craftmanship. Chapeau."
"I put a snake inside, his eye is looking me :-) I'm on the way making two identical guitars, one with the snake, one without. Be patient, as finished I will record both with a good microphone. The eye is glass, a big …"
"I've spent 30 years of my life in a very creative work. Then i became invalid. I have the luck to have a work, actually I'm doorkeper in a big iron factory. But sitting on a chair 8 hours a day looking at a window turned me…"
"Many years ago I visited the Westinghouse research center in Milano, Italy. There was an advertising: "a normal good engineer can make something very complicated that work good. But making someting very clear and simple that works the…"
"Today i've studied. I discovered the existence of the "Dulcitone" a kind of piano with no strings, but with tuning forks instead. There is one in a museum in New Zealand. And studied the phisics of tuning fork. Very…"
"Now I have soldered inside 3 ft and half of bronce. The sound is something never heard, a little bit of Sitar. I make my experiments with one single string, I've noticed that there is more time of vibration."
"I don't know if is necessary a bisquit, I just soldered a brass bridge using the minimum possible tin, and it works. But maybe is better a more large soldering to transmit the string vibration to the body ? Or is better a wood buscuit?…"
"Yeah, your "little feet" solution looks like it might work! I assume the top side of the resonator (bell) will be held in place by string pressure passing through a biscuit. Or, will there be some wood blocks to hold the resonator (bell)…"
You will see in the photos a new way to do a resonator. Is a copper/nikel soldering rod tin soldered on the inside of the brass bell. It makes an interesting sound. I will try to put inside how many I can. See More
than you mario sir for spending time in study of my work.many of my ideas were pure inspiration from others that build things as we do,but also many of my ideas were as we say original because i have taken time to study them in my mind before i start to build them with my hands.science,math,geometry,just to name a few were my childhood friends when i was learning as a young child.i must give credit to lineage and genetic traits as my father and his father were the same as i am with the spirit of invention.
