recycled instruments

Musical instruments made from junk

 

This is my latest creation. It's like a fiddle, but its main component is a shortbread tin, so I call it a "Biscuitin". I entered it for the Loanhead Music Festival Recycled Instrument competition in June 2009, but was beaten into 2nd place. Again!

 This is my Volvonator, a resonator style fretless ukelele kind of thing, tuned to open G (DGBD), and entered for the 2007 competition. 2nd place, dammit!
