I recently completed building a stick travel electric ukulele with some parts from C B Gitty. A cigar box ukulele may be in my future. In the meantime I will explore this group.Regards,BillContinue

Hi all - Mark from Guelph here.  "Old Joe" let me know about this group.  Still exploring the site (when do you use discussion group vs comment wall anyway?) but hope to hear about all things Canadian and Cigar-y!

Thanks for the tip. I'll look into it.

pete - i'd get one  up  . it's pretty  easy  to set up a free site  ,   and in my opinion  it is invaluable .  you need a place to showcase your  wares /sound demos   etc ..  . and a link  to  it  to  pass on to  folks  on  sites such as this  . 

i sell alot  . most of my  sales come from my site and  of course the folks here  .

No. Not yet. I hadn't really thought about that

got a website  pete  ?

It's a tough sell up here. I've only sold 2 CB amps so far. I need to sell more to feed the dragon cause I just can't stop myself from building them. I went to a craft show in the summer but that didn't pan out. Tough to sell to a crowd that are buying doilies and mittens. Kijiji isn't that great either cause everyone wants to lowball you. And the shipping costs pretty much screw you for selling on ebay.

Canada is a big country to cover.

And it's worst for us in Quebec as many don't speak in english. Well, there are more guys who speak both french and ienglish in the music field though.

I was in the CA of a woodcarving club in Quebec city and it was (and still is) hard to keep members. I had to go to USA to get some classes.

But Ontario is not that far...

no cbg  type fests  in  canada that i know of  atm  , i  have looked  into starting one,    and  it would seem   more  interest  and  awareness spreading is  needed  before  such an event  is established  .  lots of interest in canada  , but  it  is wide spread  . altho   ontario  seems to  be  a  high content  area  . so  it  may  look  promising in the future . 

till  then  we  can piggyback  blues fests  and    markets etc  .

Hey guys. Just found out about the Canadian contingent. Oshawa Ontario here. I build cigar box amps. I'll be taking a crack at CBG when the snow flies. Is there any swap meets or get togethers up here where we can showcase our stuff?
