The resonator is made from a phonograph reproducer, a wire and wire connects too the bridge.

Re: Made a Hurdy Gurdy

Those fancy ones are nice but very spendy and ya have to know who to play it which i don`t.
I think i`m going to build another today and try plastic string instead of steel wire which all i have is weed trimmer line.
Also may put those side strings on it too. :)

Yepper, the scratch noise is hard to get rid of in such a crude instrument, going to make another tomorrow with a five or six inch wheel and maybe different strings .
This one has steel strings may go to plastic and wood pins for the key thingy`s , who knows play it by ear right. :)

Haven`t seen the owl much so was getting worried, put camera and flashlight on a long stick and took a look.
Three eggs in there so they either are no good or she`s been out feeding.
