Non CB instruments

Started this discussion. Last reply by Randy S. Bretz Dec 5, 2012. 5 Replies

I sure hope no one minds me posting non CB instruments. About half my builds are CB related and the other half is stuff like cooke tins,salad bowls and whatever. This is just a real good way to keep…Continue

"Your shop looks like mine. I understand. I can knock a mug off any surface in any room or out of doors. I just don't like sawdust in my coffee. Please do use the mug however. Irish coffee suggested."

"Thanks Dave. My wife asked if I was gonna drink coffee out of it. I told I'll keep it on my shelf for a while and then maybe use it for drinks. I've been known to take coffee out to the shop and then knock it off the bench by accident."

$9.99 Violin?

Posted on May 20, 2016 at 1:21pm 12 Comments

Been Away

Posted on August 30, 2015 at 8:10am 14 Comments

I've kind of been away from these pages and from making instruments for the last month or so. Lots of other demands on my time from other folks and other responsibilities. I've missed it! Now that summer's winding down and the firewood pile is building up I plan to get back to doing what I love - making and playing these things. I went to the PA CBG Fest this weekend and feel rejuvenated. Got to play on the open mic stage and meet a bunch of talented people. It was great to talk to J.Rob…

Off To Clifftop

Posted on July 24, 2014 at 9:16am 1 Comment

Hey everyone, I'll be heading to the Appalachian String Band Festival (Clifftop, WV) soon and gone for a week. This American roots music festival leans heavily toward traditional fiddle and banjo tunes but there are also groups of blues, cajun and New Orleans brass band folks there as well - all acoustic music. One thing I love about this festival is that the overwhelming majority of the 3,000 + people who attend play music at various levels. There are a few who just come to listen but it's…

Hi Jim. Now I've gone off in a different direction. I couldn't do a two box version. It just wasn't worth two wood boxes. I only have relics, no two of which are alike. There was no standard sizes. Each box is a little different. I don't have any twin boxes such as yours. I'm going with a box based on a boat shaped box "shelf". Curved sides like a boat. It will have a center brace with a cut out center to make a single chamber like yours.

Hi Jim. I've been looking at the dulcimer you made for James O. I'm making one for Dulcimer Day in Duluth coming up May 5. I'll use two cigar boxes like yours. I like the 8 fret idea too. Wish me luck. .. Dave

Ha yall wanna hear me play! The easist thing to do then is to go out and find yourself a cat, snatch it up by the tail and beat it against a tree for awhile and yall will get a good earfull of my playing! I have only been seriously trying hard to play now for a very short while and progress is really slow. I am very enviable of your skill.
