in the middle of a week off of work and a month long detox so I built this monster of Canjo.

The tuning is Eee, the Bass is a 105 gauge E string and the Chugger is 10 and 46 gauges also tuned to e-e. Going to do some adjustments to the Chugger, the bridge needs to be raised so the strings don't hit the edge of the tin, but otherwise this thing is awesome. The paired Piezos sound great in the tin and the bass String isn't destroying my Mustang amp.

What you guys think

Been doing some updates on this thing, I've used a piece of Broom handle cut off as a wedge under the bridge bolt and now the strings are higher and plays like a beast. the sound is great, all 3 e strings sound great, the paired Piezos under the lid sound great as well, lots of noise and minimal feedback through the Mustang Amp, in short this thing has come out great.

It's gonna chug.
