Yahoo Answers For Diddley Bow
Question How can I make a diddley bow?
I was thinking of making a diddley bow seeing as it looks really interesting and easy to play and I love the sound, plus it looks really fun to make too. I've had a look at a few over youtube and the sound's really great. I have a few questions of my own to ask, too. - Many of the diddley bows that I've seen are made with a drainer or a collinder kind of thing to give it the echo, but I don't know if I can get one of those. Would a tin can work? Or any type of metal or glass? - How do I amplify it? I've seen how people attach a wire and things to it to get it but I'm not sure how all that works. - And finally, do I need all the guitar gear? Like a guitar pickup, a guitar tuning knob and a guitar string? Or could I use other things like fishing wire instead of a guitar string if I can't afford all that kind of stuff? Thanks for looking guys. If there's a website then throw it to me; I'll check it out. In the meantime I'll have a look around for any information on it and note it down. =]

Best Answer ok, i've made several of these things with varying strategies so i'll answer as best as i can... - Many of the diddley bows that I've seen are made with a drainer or a collinder kind of thing to give it the echo, but I don't know if I can get one of those. Would a tin can work? Or any type of metal or glass? What you are talking about is called a resonator. They have a system of metal cones that are used to cary the tone instead of a traditional soundboard (the wood on the face of a guitar is called a soundboard because it vibrates and amplifies the tone of the strings.) a tin can wont work very easily and it is highly recommended that you do some research before attempting a resonator. - How do I amplify it? I've seen how people attach a wire and things to it to get it but I'm not sure how all that works. well, there are a number of ways to do it. the easiest is to simply attach a piezo vibration pick up to the sound board underneath the bridge. http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electronics,_pickups/Pickups:_Guitar,_archtop/Schatten_Soundboard_Transducer.html lots of people use magnetic pickups, lots of people just mic the things. - And finally, do I need all the guitar gear? Like a guitar pickup, a guitar tuning knob and a guitar string? Or could I use other things like fishing wire instead of a guitar string if I can't afford all that kind of stuff? already talked about pick ups in the last question. tuning nobs are very handy and i generally recommend springing for them. i've tried to make my own friction pegs before and was not at all happy with the results. and frankly, the cheapest machine tuners are not that expensive and blow all my home made attempts out of the water. http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Tuners/Guitar,_solid_peghead_tuners/Economy_Tuners/Economy_Open_Gear_Tuners.html as far as guitar strings, strings are pretty cheap, but there are other things you can use. i dont think most fishing line would work very well, you want something that isnt very stretchy and isnt very mailable and takes tone well. the most effective thing i have found so far is nylon weed wacker cable. it even comes in various gages like guitar string and has an interesting tone by comparison to regular strings. but for most projects, i just use regular guitar strings. they tend to run just 2-8 bucks a pack after all. ok, ready for some links?: this is a good place to start http://www.cigarboxnation.com/ here is somewhere i go for parts, but they also have lots of good tutorial material. http://www.stewmac.com/ here is another site i like that is more generally about building experimental instruments, but also sells parts http://windworld.com/ one more awesome site about building instruments http://dennishavlena.com/ have fun
Question Amplifying my diddley bow?
I don't want to add a pickup as that ost loads of moeny and i'd never be able to wire it up, is there an alternative, i've heard of clip-on instrument leads, or jsut duck taping a mic to it lol, anyone?

Best Answer The simplest and easiest way to amplify your diddley bow is, as you have already suggested, to use a clip on pick up. These are not expensive - probably £6 and are primarily used for tuning instruments. I have two units. One is very small and can be clipped to the headstock of an instrument and gives a good response. The second is larger and is intended to be clipped to the sound hole of a guitar/ukulele. The larger one gives a slightly greater bass response and a louder sound. They are piezo contact units and pick up the vibrations from the instrument. They will pick up all vibrations so any knocks, bangs and abrasions will be amplified. This can be an advantage. You realise that the instrument will need to be amplified through an amplifier and speaker. A link......(for the smaller unit) http://www.djmmusic.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=WCP%2D55
