This one was fun! The natural skin head, the low tuning, the dark walnut, it all combined to make a rich and detailed sound. If I play hard, it barks and growls. If I play soft it sweetly sings. It has a rustic folk sound that makes me want to keep playing and discover what songs are stuck in it! The walnut cane from Vashon Island, brought there from back east by my friend. The amazing pistachio fretboard and trim are from California orchards.
