Hi Alan

All the photos on on my page are instruments I built, it has become an obsession . Just finished No.23 and have seven more boxes sitting in the hut waiting for attention

Hello Alan.

Why not build your own ?

It's quite easy to lay your hands on all the bits you will need up here in Geordie Land and I'd be happy to give you any help and advice you need
