A Stylish Cosmopolitan Design Tin Canjo With A Hand Carved Hardwood Neck
The ingenious One String Canjo is probably the easiest stringed instrument in the world to play. Based on the "Diddley Bow" which originated in the USA, the Canjo consists of a tin or wooden box , a wooden neck and a string. It is fretted using a dulcimer or diatonic scale, which basically translates as a major scale, or the white keys of a piano.

By using a very simple play by numbers system even someone who has never picked up a guitar before can play a recognisable tune within 60 seconds of holding a Canjo. The Canjo is supplied with the booklet "Introduction to the Canjo" which has 5 easy tunes to get you started with more tunes available from the website.

Here at Spatchcock & Wurzill I lovingly create unique musical instruments using upcycled reclaimed and recycled materials. Based on the Cigar Box Guitar, my musical instruments not only look wonderful, they are also built to be played.
I produce musical instruments all abilities from the easy to play, One String Canjo with its simple major scale, to the more versatile Cigar Box Guitars, Three and Four String Guitars, Dulcimers, Ukuleles and Banjos.


Being a hairy guy in a shed I'm not that familiar with Cosmopolitan Magazine but I believe it has something to do with clothes and wotnot. Anyway, this tin was the perfect size to make into an easy to play one string 'Canjo'.
