Synopsis

This title includes tips from the author on everything from where to find salvage parts to surviving music festival camp-outs. The most creative musical instrument book you'll ever find! You don't have to be an expert or spend a lot of money to make your own musical instruments. Just follow-along with handyman Mike Orr as he guides you through making 8 of the most creative instruments you'll find anywhere. From a one-string guitar made from a soup can, to a hubcap banjo and even a stand-up guitar made from a vintage ironing board, you'll make instruments that look great, sound great and deliver some foot-stompin' fun! With "Handmade Music Factory", you can make: Cigar Box Guitar, Hubcap Banjo, Cookie Tin Guitar, Stand-Up Lap Steel Guitar (made from a vintage ironing board!), Washtub Bass, Stomp Box, Amplified Washboard and more. You'll also learn how to make your own amp using inexpensive parts from the local electronics store. And don't miss the plentiful sidebars and tips from the author on everything from where to find salvage parts to surviving music festival camp-outs!
