I saw that and am very tempted, but having just bought the mandocello, I definitely can't justify spending that much

I put this sintir/guembri inspired thing together, using an oak dowel, an old test equipment chassis and weed wacker cord as strings. I just had .065 cord around the house and it's on both strings now, but I am going to pick up some .090 cord for the lower string, since the experiment seems to have worked. I'll add a piezo pickup as well.

That sounds great! Piezo should be very fun with that :thumb:

I put two different gauges of thicker strings on the fake Sintir, really surprised how well the weed wacker cord works:

Gaize, I have it on good authority that somewhere on this album, someone plays a ronroco.

my sweetie bought me a 12-button autoharp off of Facebook yard sale or whatever they call it. i'm looking forward to messing with it now that i got the tuning wrench off eBay. if i get significantly into it i might buy a second one and cannibalize the bars and cut new felt blocks to have more chords available so i can adapt it to play in a particular key; this one seems biased towards F.

hopefully some (well-heeled?) from California norteno snags this and gets their Sylvius Leopold Weiss on. (but if you plan on getting your Tuck Andress on, please keep it in the quarantine room)
