Hi Audiojungle Peeps, I frequently use nylon string instruments in my tracks (guitar, ukulele, guitalele) because I love the tone of wood and nylon, and my lady fingers find nylon strings easier to handle than steel. In an effort to indulge this infatuation, I’ve just purchased an instrument called a “ronroco” from Bolivia (a 10 string, round-backed ukulele/mandolin hybrid) and now eagerly await it’s arrival (finger’s crossed it lands before Christmas day). I’m wondering if anyone out there has used a “ronroco” in their tracks, and how they find it. Also, any suggestions of other weird nylon string instruments I should be on the lookout for?

Cheers

Hey MastaBlack_fK,

Cheers for the link to the virtual Ronroco! Makes me even more impatient for the instrument to arrive. Interesting facts – the original Ronroco (or a smaller version of the instrument from which it derives called a charango) was made from the hollowed out shell of an armadillo…..now they just use wood!
