Hi all!I am building an upright bass with an oversized resonator (utility pan). I am wondering about the reason for a cover plate. Is it merely ornamental or is there an acoustic need?Cheers!
Hi Guys, I'm building my first reso with a star shaped silver candy dish as the cone. Im wondering if I should run the neck thru under the dish, or terminate the neck somehow before the dish.
My latest reso build using a juice can! thanx bairfoot cajun for some of the ideas I have seen in your builds!
I really enjoy playing ukulele (concert size tuned G,C,E,A) but...I'm a big fan of Delta Blues and I want to learn to play slide. I think that means steel strings so I want to build a CBG. My first question might seem silly but here goes: How many strings...are there pros and cons to 3 versus 4 given that I'm used to strumming and picking 4 strings on my uke. Next silly question: Since this is my first build, I want to buy a neck rather than build one. However, I want to make my CBG a resonator using an old brass clock face (see below). Is it possible to have a "through the box" neck design with a resonator if the cone depth is very shallow (about 1/2" deep)? Thanks for any thoughts you might share!
involves the old brass clock face in this photo. Do you think I could use it like a resonator cone on my CBG build? It is 6.25" in diameter.
I finished the Banjonator except for electrifing it. Pretty loud as is but sounds like a 3 string bango!
