The first notes on this tenor Prestigious model! 🎶
The brass tone ring provides volume and sustain to the voice of this instrument, that only weighs 650 g 😜
Testing this new soprano model! 💥

It’s built with a spanish cedar body and a “blackwood tek” fretboard.

The blackwood tek is a technologically modified wood that exhibites properties and and appearance of african ebony.
It’s lighter and more stable than ebony, I choose it also because it’s eco-friendly.

This is a Prestigious model with blackwood tek fretboard, fish skin head and brass tonering! 🔥

Le prime note sul Gourd Banjo a 5 corde!
Purtroppo non sono molto in grado di suonarlo, ma le sonorità sono interessanti!

I played for the first time my new five strings gourd banjo!
I will improve my playing technique, but I think that it sounds good.
Ecco finalmente terminato il Gourd-Ukulele!
Manico in cedrella, tastiera in palissandro, piano armonico in pelle di pesce, il tutto montato su una zucca che funge da cassa di risonanza!

This is the tenor Gourd-Ukulele!
Realized with spanish cedar, rosewood, fish leather and, obviously, a gourd!
Greensleeves suonata sul modello sul banjoukulele soprano marchiato Waiz!
This Supernova will leave Waiz studio very soon! 🔥
This one is tuned in C, the next two ones will have the same tuning of a classical guitar! 😎
Some months ago Luca Castelli played one of my banjoleles, he enjoyed it but it wasn’t enough:
he wanted six strings instead of four!
So I built the first Supernova, and I’m really happy for the result.
As you can hear, it’s amplified with a piezo sensor, maybe I’ve exaggerated with the reverb 😅
It’s a really particular instrument, I haven’t understood yet for which kind of music it could be used!

Which music would you play with it?
I’M LOOKING FOR open-minded musicians who want to play this ⤵️

I would like to thank all of you incredible people who believed in this project and made it possible.

The campaign exceeded its goal 🏁 but I still want to keep it up for anyone who wants to play the unique handmade WAIZ BENJOLELE 🪕 the benjoukulele which sounds louder than a guitar.


❗️ … at the end of the campaign I will close the orders, and you could NOT book it for months (no, not even if you pay me in advance 🙂)

• If you’re a musician and you’re looking for a peculiar sound for your shows
• if you want to play something different
• or if you’re a collector

please hurry up because there are few hours left for grabbing it!

Thank you 💚
