yeah I really dig it for a lil tiny 6-7 inch gourd. It really looks weird with such a little gourd and a long neck. I will be making one with a bigger gourd for sure next time, maybe get a lil more belly rumblin boom out of it

How did you make the neck?  Nice sound!

I based it off of this only its a two layer stack instead of three since the gourd I used was small. I also cut it really narrow and gave it a decent frailing scoop. I'll try and get some pics of it this weekend.
