Not much time for the shop today, and I just did a few cosmetic things on Linda's uke and started the final sanding so there was nothing much to photograph. So I offer you a few scenes from the recent past.
Here I am playing my very fun two string bass "Son of Gut Bucket". As you can see I have it amped using a MiSi pickup . Don't be fooled by that yellow electric cord, that is going to other equipment, My Phil Jones bass amp is powered by a thin black battery that you can just see above the amp. It works just great. I have had a wonderful time with this crazy instrument that I built as a learning experie nce. It has great tone and volume. Two cello strings tuned C and F give me one octave. Fun!!
If you are looking for a quality gig bag, I've got em. Three sizes, tenor, concert and soprano. They are made for me in Mexico. $40 bucks and I will ship one to you. call or email your order- they are really well padded, Have a handle, a strap and a small pocket.
I am convinced- The Kasha system makes for a superb ukulele. This instrument, my 100th. is maturing into a wonderful sounding ukulele. I have another started using Cocobolo and Torrefied Spruce to see how those woods change the sound, but this one made of East Indian Rosewood and Redwood sounds terrific. It has become my favorite ukulele. I am now a believer in the Kasha bracing system.
Family fun, This was filmed on San Juan Island last summer as some of the family were learning how to play the Ukulele. The dancer is my great grand-daughter Tally.
And here is the Bellingham Ukulele Orchestra performing at the Mt. Baker Theater last week.
