"Ted, long story short, my wife put me up to making a thumb piano for the big sad clown, Puddles Pity Party,  I still have no idea why she thought he needed one. She's supposed to be the psychic in this house, not me. "

8 tine kalimba

"I went with the mic for a couple reasons, I'd picked up an old SMG-188 karaoke machine with the mic for $3.75 at a local thrift store and I wanted to be able to run it through that as its amp, when I tried the piezo diddly-bow through it, it…"

From Ted Crocker
What instruments are you building or playing?
I'm building my first, it will be a 4 string slide guitar, I am no guitarist at all, and although I am going to give learning the slide guitar an honest try at a later time, I'm building this one for my stepson to take with him in his sleeper when he's on the road.

Hi Bear, welcome to the Clubhouse!  Good to see you here, be careful, you can get lost for months...

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments and music. There are lots of helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.

Have a look around, introduce yourself in My Name Is... and add yourself to the Member Map. There's an active Chat Room where you can ask questions, offer help or just talk about anything with some great folks.

Most of all Have Fun!
