This instrument is an updated version of my first Dronemachine. It's been constructed from 100% reclaimed materials, so I didn't spend a penny making this, just a lot of thought, time and imagination.
It uses a circular pickup that came from the outer core of an electric fan motor. The strings are resonated by a frayed piece of string attached to a motor. The strings have their length changed (and therefore their pitch) by the washers which are attached to parts of a piano action mechanism. Simple stuff really!
It sounds sort of how I thought it would, But then it's always hard to tell what experiments will sound like.
There's more photos of it at my blog (http://vulpestruments.blogs...
