Idea for miniature accordion-esque instrument

Lately I've been really into the whole gypsy jazz and swing jazz with accordions, and I've been really searching for a portable accordion to make, however there is nothing online that I have seen…Continue

An idea for a minor modification to the tricone resonator bridge

I'm curious if you can add some wooden supports to the bridge that help put some or most of the load off of the cones if you use heavier gauge strings, and to overall increase longevity of the cones…Continue

Idea for miniature accordion-esque instrument

Lately I've been really into the whole gypsy jazz and swing jazz with accordions, and I've been really searching for a portable accordion to make, however there is nothing online that I have seen that gives instructions on how to create an accordion so i just abandoned the idea. However a few days ago it came to me that maybe you could do some modifications to the smallest free reed areophone; the harmonica, so that it acts like an accordion with buttons that allow air flow to certain spots.My…See More

"I haven't thought of your suggestion before, i would do it, if i had a shop and not a room haha. I see what you're saying about how the cone needs to have the pressure of the strings on it so it can vibrate and produce sound. What i should…"

Scott aka Farmer Ted replied to Troy Sriplung's discussion An idea for a minor modification to the tricone resonator bridge
"Might be out of my exper-teeze...but the cones are designed to take the string load. If the load is taken off the cone(s) the sound would be reduced so much, that the resonation would be decreased so much, that the cone(s) would be decoration rahter…"

I'm curious if you can add some wooden supports to the bridge that help put some or most of the load off of the cones if you use heavier gauge strings, and to overall increase longevity of the cones because they won't get all bent out of shape regularly, and because the cones are very expensive.I wonder if you add supports that touch the bridge would it dampen the sound substantially or will it depend on the type of wood you're using? See More

"I remembered today that i forgot to add how it was bizarre. I was thinking of possibly attaching a separate instrument onto the guitar, and having it be a supplement to the guitar and not a stand alone instrument. The other thing…"

"Thank you for the offer to help, i really appreciate it! I'm curious about the thickness that you recommended. I've noticed that a lot of resonators are substantionaly much heavier  than normal acoustic guitars.…"

"Awesome Troy! Get excited! Just ask away! As to the thickness of the body, I think 3/16" sounds better then 1"."

I'm new to this forum and so far it's really informative and there's a really nice community. I'm wondering if I can be helped out a little bit... Or a lot.I'm considering building a guitar, but the catch is. I have no previous guitar making out wood working experience, however I'm not planning on making a particularly hard build (I've done my research); the guitar I'm planning on building is a resonator guitar or "Dobro", and I heard the bodies were often ade if plywood however that did not…See More
