It's always nice when a real pro musician gets to play one of your creations and show what beautiful music it is capable of. :rolleyes:

Now that you are about to become famous as an instrument maker in Turkey, I'm expecting you to announce your new range of hand crafted ouds, along with a number of tools and jigs to make it easier for others to make them too.

It seems just the one string will suffice which should cut back the time required for setup. It would also mean you have to adapt your string spacing machine.
In any case, the muso seemed to be enjoying himself - which is what it's all about.

That's Jyoti's uke. She is a wonderful performer and has done many, many gigs and entertained many, many people with that uke!

As a matter of interest and entertainment...This soprano in the video was made almost 7 years ago as an experiment, using the inside mold technique that was first demonstrated in that old 1917 film..I documented that build on the Cosmos forum. Here
