Single String Things

Cremola Foam Can Electric Diddley Bow

Very easy to construct. - A can resonator, screwed to a plank. One string, one tuner, one fret, one piezo, one jack. Holes drilled in the can to allow screwdriver access. Tuned to open A - Played with a slide. MAKE ONE! They are great fun.

Electric Walking Stick Cane Canjo

Really just another diddley bow, with a sweetie tin resonator and a neck made from an old walking stick. I had to cut a small headstock for the tuner, and a small 'zero' fret. The string is 'ball ended' so it won't pass through the drilled hole at the heel of the instrument.
