David Hornett Posted September 10, 2018 Share Posted September 10, 2018 Hi All, My latest Tassey Tiger, with metal ends. I call it a 51/2 inch, but the way I have inserted the metal blew it out to nearly 5 3/4 inch. I eventually got the gold leaf (well in this case, silver leaf) skill under the belt. At some stage I will get a Youtube clip up of someone playing it. The metal ends certainly add a lot to the volume and spread of tones, compared to the wooden instruments, but they required a change in construction; so the instrument's weight, with the higher box, longer screws and buttons and the extra weight of the metal, and thicker box frames added 200 grams over the wooden ended instruments, to bring the instrument to 1.3kg. P.S. Nickel silver (German Silver) is not very kind to scroll saw blades. All the best, David Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
