In an attempt to make the whole thing sound brighter, I’ve made a nut out of brass… haven’t cut the grooves in it yet, but it’s turned out quite well.
I quite like working with brass – kindof time-consuming, but you wind up with things that look like jewels… although there’s nothing like taking photos of things to show up the scratches etc. Pity it doesn’t stay jewel-like. Maybe I should use gold. There’s no reason not to… apart from the expense.
I made the nut out of the bit of brass rod sitting next to it. Not sure where that came from. “The Basement”. There’s quite a lot of useful stuff in The Basement. God knows how it got there.
