Very interested to see this build progress Tony. I've had a guitar conversion to mandocello on the back burner for years now, bought all that I needed to do it, but it never seems to make it to the front of the project line.

Making a Virzi tone producer

So, after weighting the pro and cons I've made up my mind and will install a Virzi in my M'Cello. Although it will be my first time playing around with one, It is something I want to ,First, have in for the sound it produce, second to learn something new and experiment with it.. The wood used is Torrefied Sitka Spruce

Very nice build. Have you heard it yet? Now that you have that project whipped, and you're a real gluten for punishment give a nyckelharpa a try.

Hey Pop, Haven't heard it yet… still in the building stages and need to finish the neck, backboard and fretboard before I get to hear it.. A nyckelharpa would definitely be an interesting build but I don't find myself wanting to make one …. at this point in time anyway!...

Thanks for watching and your comment!

Wow, that is a beautiful instrument and some really impressive craftsmanship Tomy. I think I would have liked the challenge of this type of work if I had a musical bone in my body. I love projects that are useful and artful and I can't think of anything better qualified than the fine instruments that you are building.
