    Hi,

    I hope it's ok to post this here, I apologize if it's not.

    I'm doing this project for a music production program at my uni.
    It's about genre recognition and evaluation of "liveliness",...

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    For those , who might wonder about "shallow nut" as I did - here how it looks like 92574

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    That's what they point out in Israeli museum: "Parchment from a desecrated Torah scroll".
    One is for sure, whoever played this mando didn't care much for holy scrolls.

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    Just found a sister to my mando-banjo on a "Ghetto Fighters House Archives" website
    Apparently, it's in a museum in Israel.

    So, this instrument could be an attempt to elaborate on idea...

    Interesting development about the Hebrew inscription on the head - it is actually a part
    of a Scripture Scroll parchment, book of Ester to be exact.
    Those are names of some hanged guys.

    Not exactly like zither, though.
    But exactly like this type of Turkish dumbek (darbuka, if you wish)

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    well, it is made very much like Turkish Cümbüş.
    it is basically a dumbek drum by construction.
    so, this particular one could actually originate in Ottoman's Palestine.
    probably made by Jewish...

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    Sure, will do, thanks !
    It isn't a good instrument maybe, but it is certainly quite rare to me, though.
    I've seen plenty of instruments over the years working with deceased estates and pawnshops.

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    Yes, I saw this picture earlier .
    It's a DDR-made Musima (Marma).
    I had a few of those.
    They utilize a distinct type of nut, looks like a sandwich.
    No slot in the neck, though.

    I do have some bits and pieces which may fit with minor sanding.
    Got some bone and black horn plates about 2,5- 3 mm .

    I've checked an old mando with a "shallow" nut today at the local store, so, I can say now it is not the same thing as I thought.

    It never had another owner since the WW2.
    This I know for sure.
    I find the construction being interesting too, actually.

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    Yes, they did.
    I have one like this too, but there the nut and 0 fret are combined in one piece of metal.

    mmm...
    There is glue residue at the end of fretboard and on the fretboard right before 0 fret.
    Originally it is a mando-banjo, whole metal (besides the neck) style. Looks like one-off or a small...

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    A nut that thin?
    The slot is about 2mm.
    Could it be a metal one?
    You maybe just right and I'm overcomplicating things.

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    Thanks for your advice.
    Will try to cut out some combination of those two last images , a nut in shape of a step.
    I think, that's how it originally looked like.

    Re: "shallow nut" replacement

    I don't mean zero fret, it's in place.
    I mean the nut of shallow type, which fits on the edge of the fretboard.

    "shallow nut" replacement

    I wonder if someone could post a picture of "shallow" type of nut, the one which is mounted on the fingerboard itself.
    I'm trying to figure out how to make one.
    Thanks

    On the pictures I've posted we see usually fretted instruments.

    I knew it has to be made with 1/4 tones, and it is.
