New Workshop - New Instruments

New Workshop - New Instruments

I am delighted to be working in the magnificent space that is The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall, Trongate, Glasgow. (The oldest surviving Music Hall in the world}, and the place where the young Stan Laurel made his debut as a performer. - I am just settling in, and have, in production, an Appalacian Dulcimer, an Electric Washboard, and several Cigar Box Guitars. - Huge thanks to Judith, Stacy and all at 'The Pots' for giving me the chance to work in a studio space again.  I Love It !

CAJONTY Electric Cajon

CAJONTY(c) Electric Cajon

I have never seen anyone else make an electric cajon. I love the ones that I have made. They are so simple to construct, and I laugh when I see the price some people charge for a cajon. Let me know if you would like one.

The 'Instructions' Cigar Box Ukulele - For Grace.

The 'Instructions' Cigar Box Ukulele - For Grace

Grace, on Amanda Palmer's Patreon page, mentioned that she had a dream about a ukulele, decorated with illustrations from Neil Gaiman's poem 'Instructions', so I offered to make the dream a reality, and the uke will be posted out to Massachusetts on Monday. Unbeknown to me, until yesterday, I finished it on Grace's birthday... Happy birthday Grace!
