Sorry to hear of your health problems. I hope you make a total recovery soon.

I meant to ask, how does the hurdy gurdy sound and what problems did you have constructing the instrument and how easy was it to set up? Am I correct in assuming that notes are stopped or fretted by a kind of keyboard?

It's the kind of thing that I would love to build, but I know that I never will.

OUCH! I bet that hurt.

Ref 'bass' ukulele neck............

there are a number of things that helped in this construction. The neck is, compared with a normal bass, is very short; the hard wood, through the body design; the thick (ish) finger board and rose wood neck binding; and most importantly the relatively low tension of the "strings".

Hi Brian,
the cigar box ukulele 'bass' has a scale length of 50cm - 20 inches. Usual (ish) baritone ukulele size. The neck width at the nut is 35mm and at the 12th fret is 45mm.

Hi mate - just a quick link you might enjoy re: spinning reso cones. The video suggests that with the right material and know-how, spinning cones is childs play - without heat! Il be trying again tomorrow with some much thinner material, so Il keep you posted!

Hey Brian, Amazing effort mate - only prob is now I want one but don't have a clue where to start. Wish I'd built it :)

Believe me Brian, when Im limited to just 2 words, that IS speechless!!! hehe
Looks like a very involved build! Its certainly very eye catching... any chance of a sound demo?? I love this kind of experimentation, good work!

when you go to wcbn music should start to play right away. the music player is at the top of the page and there are 46 different artists on there. let me know if you need more help or ask the guys in the chat to help you find your way around. everyone here is generally pretty happy to help out.
