Do-Ma-Flotch-Chee Electric Sit Down Bass
« on: February 26, 2012, 07:08:37 AM »
Good Morning from the homestead!  I been working on this instrument off and on for the past year or so or rather thinking about it.  Had the wood bowl sitting on a shelf in the shop I wanted to use but couldn't figure out exactly how LOL.  It's almost finished now.  Last night when I was testing it I decided to add a kazoo to the top of the neck ;D .  I think this one will be a keeper for myself.
 
best to all!
Butch

We are quite a pair, she is classically trained with a BA in Music, and MA's in Flute Composition and Music Education and me and old kid from Carolina Piedmont that has difficulty with all those little squiggley things she writes on paper LOL.  I try to pluck when she's out teaching or down in the workshop.  I finally got a separate music room isolated from the dust of the workshop.  Even got a upright piano in there for the wife.  Not great for recording except from 1-4 am when there's no logging trucks going down the road LOL, but great for practice without bothering anybody.
 
I haven't decided whether to sell this one or keep it for myself.  Will have to see after it's all finished.  I have one addition I thought of last night, yep! A KAZOO!  I am going to incorporate a kazoo into the top of the neck. LOL
 
I was also thinking about a small top hat for the bass.  I got a couple CD sized metal disc that I used some as symbls on another instrumment a couple years ago that would work.  Have to think about this one.  May end up a one man band instrument LOL 
 
Old men are dangerouse when left with their own devices in an isolated workshop in the woods LOL.
 
Off to grab some coffee and guitar for a wee bit.
 
later,
Doc Kazoo!

Thanks for sharing, always find it extremely interesting when people make their own instruments.  8)

If I had a workshop I would experiment to no end myself, ha!  ;D

Thanks, glad you liked it.  It's definitely different.  I love it when I get time to play with ideas in the workshop.  That doesn't happen very often.  This project is lots of fun.  It's like being on vacation without having to leave the homestead. 8)
