Hello, new guy here.

Postby Christopher Harms » Thu Jan 11, 2018 5:58 pm

I've been lurking here for about a week and thought I'd make my presence known. I am a new builder of musical things. I was lured into the craft by videos of kalimbas on Youtube, and I've built one already that I'm not entirely pleased with. I'm also working on a design for a silly stringed instrument as a way to learn what goes into the design process of more conventional instruments. My ultimate goal is to gather the skills and tools to build an octobass, because I think that instrument is hilarious.

Welcome to the forum!
Lots of people here with a lot of skill, who are willing to share.
I need your help. I can't possibly make all the mistakes myself!
