Started this discussion. Last reply by Paul Craig Mar 11. 12 Replies

You've seen bits and pieces of this over the past few months. I won't say it is finished but I've learned to play it enough so I'm not completely embarrassed. Here's the Cello Bo. (Don't worry, I'll…Continue

Trouble converting an old radio to an amp

Started this discussion. Last reply by Timothy Hunter Jan 22. 19 Replies

I've found the volume pot, that was tricky since this radio has volume and tone on the same shaft. But by measuring the resistance I could see it change on the "back" pot when I turned the volume…Continue

Tung oil on old wood boxes, with and without Photos

Started this discussion. Last reply by Paul Craig Dec 30, 2017. 4 Replies

I read a ton of the old threads about finishing the old boxes. I had just cut a 3" hole out of an old box for the 3" speaker and I thought, hey, I can do the test. Here it is:…Continue

"I've done it directly under the saddle, I'm happy, but I wonder, like Korrigan said, if I should have added a pre-amp. I was unable to get it to work with old-radio-amp and I think signal strength was the issue. The sound is great, but…"

Paul Cezanne replied to jeff weins's discussion Wen drill press?
"I'm late to the party here, but I looked at the Wen and went with the slightly more expensive Skil. Why? Three year warranty with a track record of handling problems.  Cost more though, but there's another option out there. And nice…"

"Glad I helped, just don't try to put it under your chin with the spike on it. Haha Just remembered on The Beverly Hillbillies TV show when Jethro was playing his big Fiddle(Cello) under his chin and poking himself in the neck. Haha"

"Hmmm, yeah. My cello has a steel spike with optional rubber tip. You use the spike on carpet and the rubber tip on hardwood. That actually just gave me a idea. I should buy (or make) a cello spike and mount that to the cross piece. That way the…"

"That turned out great Paul and it sounds good. You might want to add a rubber piece to the bottom of the stand so it doesn't slip around. Maybe a walking cane tip, if you use the cane attachment with the four tips it will also serve as a stand.…"

"Baritone guitar? That's a thing? OMG, strings may be cheaper than cello strings.... Yup, way cheaper. I can get a set of D'Darrio for $7 as opposed to no name crap strings for $10, and I've broken 3 sets building this! I guess…"

JL replied to Paul Cezanne's discussion First Build - The Cello Bo
"It's a beautiful Baritone Scale instrument (Bari-Schtick?) Is the cross piece long enough to spike the floor and play sitting down like an orchestral cello? couldn't you make another back/second piece that is long enough to play standing…"

"I see what you did there! :- ) The funny part is is that I started building only to have a source of vibration since I was building an amp. LOL, talk about a project that took on a life of its own."
