Return to the Intonarumori Tuesday 10th April 2012

Gosh it's been over 8 months since I've worked on this. I'm now determined to get it finished, but a few problems remain. Using a guitar machine head to tension the string seems to work well however a guitar bridge on the bridge does not. There is too much friction here when the bridge slides. I'm going to craft a small metal pulley instead which will turn. I'm also not sure about the tone a metal gauge 42 guitar string gives and the wood rubbing against this string. I will have to experiment here.
It may sound better when enclosed.
Here's a shot of the guitar machine head.
And here's the problematic guitar bridge on the slider.
