Pan to the present..woah..twenty years later
I'm still at it..A lot to digest and am still stuffed.
In any event I am still using the Kasha/Schneider
patterns for both soundboard and backboard plates.
The guitars are getting better and better..I'm still
not there yet as I've heard the power and projection
of Richard Schneiders Kasha instuments and I'm not
On the upside my craftsmanship and familiarity have
risen dramatically and will continue and my guitars
keep improving..ah the road to Nirvana can also be
fun. The Kasha/Schneider braced ukuleles are a different
story. Clear and defined tones, evenly balanced and
a joy to hear and play. I've downsized the Kasha/Schneider
bracings and reduced the number of bars to correlate
to the smaller sizes of the ukuleles.
I've been playing with multiple sound ports and placing
ports in the upper and lower side bouts of the ukulele.
The Shop Tour depicts a couple of these ukuleles..I
really like the results and is well worth continuing
in this direction.
