    Yeah, that's it! We have a Celtic band in the area that has a hurdy gurdy in the lineup, and when he engages the buzzing bridge, can really get that thing moving; it's pretty cool.

    Thanks for the...

    Pretty interesting. I kind of miss the buzzing thing you can have on the hurdy gurdy that allows you to play percussive parts along with the notes. I would be curious what strings he's using, because...

    And that might be all the rationale needed to distinguish between a tenor guitar and octave ukulele; the audience that the instrument is going to be marketed toward.

    Which was my whole point. What is the difference then, between a tenor guitar with Chicago tuning, and this Contra Uke that has a very similar scale, body size and tuning? Just the steel strings on...

    No argument here; I regularly play a 6 string bass and do a lot of chordal work on it, even with the low B, so I know all about it.

    My question was more that the scale of your contra uke and a tenor guitar are very similar, and the size is a bit bigger than a baritone, closer to a tenor. That was where my initial curiosity came...

    Just out of curiosity, how is the contra uke different from just a tenor guitar with a different tuning?

    I'd be curious what balancing effect it would have by putting 3.5oz on the headstock on a tenor or baritone. On a guitar, it's a non-issue. But ukes are much smaller and lighter.

    What it does (on a bass, anyway) is by adding mass to the headstock, it minimizes or removes the dead spots on an instrument. By doing that, it allows the instrument to sustain better, since those...

    String diameter, scale length AND the pitch frequency are going to determine string tension.

    Much of the sound of a sitar is derived from the extra drone strings. If you can add enough of those, it should approximate it well enough.
