Thanks. Cool article. The old artwork with the woman with the trapezoidal instrument reminded me of the Hungarian cimbalom.Dul-cim-mer and cim-bal-lom. I missed the similarity initially, but they are…Continue

keep in mind the dano mod delay gets noisy when you boost the delay time to longer settings . you can hear it chugging away , specially when you are not playing . you can tweak the repeat and mix xontrol to minimize it , or use noise gate / or something .
its not a huge issue considering i got a 4 pack of dano effects for 30 bucks at GC .
i havnt tested the cb delay on a guitar amp . that circuit is in my volvo's theramin PA .
i modded that for a long delay too , and i used a cds cell . when you cover the cell the circuit makes this crash noise , really cool , and it recovers fine w/o a reboot !
i dont know how experienced you are with cbg's . i only made one so far and 2 amps . i used a piezo , and found i HAD to build a preamp . other folks may say you dont need em , thats cuz their amps can handle a piezo . if you run into that issue , lemme know , i can point you in the right direction to a super easy / cheep preamp circuit .
Welcome aboard, Murray! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBU, CBB, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).
Up in the Free Resources menu at the top, you will see a number of plans for building and playing cigar box guitars/ukuleles/banjos/dulcimers/violins. I encourage you to download any of the plans, take a look at them, and ask questions from there. Also our site is VERY searchable. I bet you your questions have already been asked, so take a few moments and look around.
