I’ve just been spending the last couple of weeks building up the tooling to cut these three Sirena Pistolera bass bodies. They’ve been chambered extensively to save weight and also affect the sound to some degree. I’m really excited about how nice they’ve been turning out to be.
This article is more about luthiers than performers. In a hyberbolic sense, could image building an instrument as a subversive act, but I could never really imagine that building an instrument would be an act of sheer bravery.
War is evil. A musical instrument serves but one purpose; to create joy. To build instruments is to create the tools that make beauty. I hope that someday anyone in the world can find the freedom to build musical instruments and bring beauty to the Earth.
I’ve got this micro coil pickup project on my bench. This bobbin prototype is made of cast polyurethane and paper. I’m looking forward to getting this li’l guy up and running. #funktronicpickups #pickupwinding #handwoundpickups #basspickups #boutiqueguitars #luthiery #boutiquepickups
