Ted Bau, a 4 hour project snuck in while waiting for finish to dry on the real work today. I used a stew can and a tuna can, both sprayed gold. The base is a 2X4, the trem thing is a dowel sprayed black. The base for the big can as well as the mount support inside it is wood that's sprayed gold.

I added a piezo inside the big can sandwiched between a piece of rosewood with foam double stick tape and the can and screwed into the mount for the tuner on the outside.

Man this thing is fun to play!

I  admire the respect you take to the original vietnamese instrument.  You do this with love, indeed.

Man this is too cool Ted, miki bought me an old hospital cotton swab container from the thrift store the other day. So guess I`d better get my first "canjo" under way. But this one you did is awesome!!!!!
