Kind of blows a hole in that whole tone wood debate.

I think 60 minutes did a story on him several years ago. Has a whole orchestra of kids playing instruments made out of trash.

What a great man. If only there was someone making banjos out of trash for our 37.25 million Americans living below the poverty line.

Perhaps a great man making square shaped banjos?

Anybody e-mail me and asks, I'll e-mail the Squared Eel plans, and they can become the Great Person for their locale.
Same deal with the Wonderful One-Stringed Wunjo.

Used fiddles/violinist are about the cheapest instrument you can buy. Many are hanging on the wall as ornaments, lying unused in basements and garages, and more. If a TV news program announcement mentioned this situation in places like Peru, some viewers would mail unused instruments to a collection point. Just show a distressed youngster trying to play a "piece of crap" and make sure they have a tear in their eye.

Sorry, I only have 2 fiddles and they are currently employed. If my wife saw that TV ad, she would probaably try to send one of my fiddles to the collection point.

I think you are thinking of the orchestra of the rag pickers kids, the leader plays a guitar from metal cans.
