Live - With Home Made Spirit Level Bass Diddley Bow. One Song, one string!

Sorry about the BUZZ! (problems always seem to occur as soon as you hit that live button, lol!)

If you would like to throw something into my virtual tip jar, you can do so here : -) - https://paypal.me/bemuzic?locale.x=en_GB

I'm playing a one string spirit level bass diddley bow that I made in 2012. I bought the spirit level for £1 from the back of an antique shop and the string was left over from another build. The most I spent was on the pick up a flatpup “Diddley Bug” For more details and links have a look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbthoy3G5Es

The loop pedal is an Electroharmonix22500, and the amp is a Roland Cube-30 Bass.

Thanks Danny, those old levels are very strong and just asking to have strings put on! It did feel a bit wrong cutting into it, though it could still be used as a level...
