I have been making ‘small drone parts’ over the past few days. The original plan was only to have bass drones for the workshop, but the small drone adds to the techniques and is an important part in learning how to play. It can be a little difficult tuning a 2nd drone easily and successfully, an out of tune drone is annoying as an out of tune chanter, so tuning ones ear to a harmony can be useful to know.
I am experimenting with woods, mixing them together, joining them together and playing with outer designs. I do like making the wooden parts.
I made another bellow, still trying different techniques out, experimenting with different glues and ways of assembling in a less messy manner.
If I get the time I will use it with the workshop, but at the moment I am finalizing 7 sets and if I can squeeze in an 8th all well and good.
