I made a couple of Thumb Pianos for the kids. But being a non- musical guy I now have to figure out how to tune them , not that they care. They are easy to make just a box with some hardware on top.
One is Walnut with Oak sides and Cypress on top , its 5 1/2×7 x 1 1/2 , this one has a nice deep tone to it.More like what I thought they would sound like.
The other one is Walnut with western cedar side , it’s a little smaller with a bit of a tapper. This one doesn’thave as nice of sound to it , maybe I will be able to help it by playing with the tuning .
The metal key things are from an old lawn rake , after I’m done trying to tune them I’ll cut them to look a little better.
Please comment even if I did it wrong.
