Someone out there living near Clinton, Tennessee, site of the Museum of Appalachia, with its great collection of traditional musical instruments? For a first impression, check the documentation about this treasure on http://www.cigarboxnation.com/video/museum-slideshow.
To study the details of the presented instruments, to refer to a single instrument, a busy slide show is far from ideal, it would be…Continue

Finnish lumberjacks played on their camps an instrument similar to One String Sam's diddley bow, sometimes in duett with a crosscut saw.
For finnish followers I add here descriptions I found on internet:
sippiviulu - säilykepurkista, laudanpalasta ja kitaran tai viulunkielestä tehty savottajätkän soitin.
Olen jopa nuorena nähnyt sahan soittoa sekä sippiviulun soittoa duettona. Sippiviuluhan on laudan päälle viritetty peltipurkki jonka yli menee rautalanka…Continue

Just another type of resonators, based on gramophone pickups
Hi Moritz, I'll gladly take a look at your work about How To Play and give what feedback I can.
Hi Moritz, for sure it wasn't just you, sorry if I wrote it that way. I wouldn't have guessed that English wasn't your native tongue, you write better than I do! I agree with you in many aspects, I'm cautiously optimistic that Lace will take our feedback and adjust and develop based on that, but it takes time. I imagine this is a very small division in the whole for them and as such only gets a very limited focus. On the other hand,, they could have a completely different agenda and so be it. Shane may have more communication with them and know more. Time will tell.
Unless I missed part of his comment, which is possible since it was deleted before I could read it in the forum,,, it sounded to me like he was upset that you were a bit disrespectful to Lace and company,, which I thought too until you clarified in a message. Shane deleted the message, so it should either end there or else taken to private message to get clarity. Personally, I haven't even given a thought to any infringement, unless a person goes into production, you can build whatever you want. Lace hasn't come out and demanded we stop, and until he does I'm not even going to worry a bit about that aspect of it.
Hi Moritz, sadly, it doesn't surprise me, the problem with those threads is the person who initiates them can remove them at any time, taking everyone elses input with them, not the first time it's happenned, it's a pity as there was some good stuff on there, some i wanted to reference again at some time. I try not to get paranoid about these things, but there seems to be a pattern.
I suspect that most people are more interested in building a pickup, but, I can appreciate your desire to insure that credit is given where it's due.
I'm afraid I didn't pick up any Finnish as a kid, I could be persuaded that my post was a bit hasty. People are excited about building a 'new' kind of pickup, does hyper analysis of who had what idea first help them physically make a pickup?
