"Thanks for all the nice comments guys!!! Happy you dig the clip, I'm having a blast over here playing this thing(string), hehe!! Gonna use it live on stage Saturday night at a local blues event.. I'm pretty sure the audience in my hometown…"
I have a little question, and knowing how a reso-guy you were, I thought you would be the best person to ask.
I have always wanted a National Duolian, but right now I don't have the money to spend - being a stundent -, and I certainly do not want to spend it on Chinese knock-offs.
Anyhow, I will probably pick one up in two years when I am in the States, but until then, I would like to have a replacement. Right now, I am building my own (which was easier than I thought, actually). But I still have one minor question which I have not figured out yet: what would be the distance between the cone and the sound well?
All the dimensions are given on the blueprint I have, except this one.
I noticed you had a Levin Dansant, and can't help but wonder if you could give me a word of advice concerning the price. I know of one for sale, but have no clue on what to pay whatsoever. After some research, I have seen almost everything from 100 EUR up to 800 EUR.
