    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Dusie it is then. Can you play all these instruments you build? Very well done. Those bowl backs on your website look like a ton of work.

    I can play most of them, with a few exceptions. I can certainly make a sound on all of them!
    The bowlbacks take me about the same amount of time as a flatback.
