The winter months are too cold for playing music here, so it's the time of year when I start meddling with junk and build things.

Luckily, I've come down with the flu so I took the day off work and was able to document my latest projects. Here they are:

1. Rotary Speaker mkII


This has a foot pedal for speed control

I've blogged the build here: http://silverysqueaks.blogspot.jp/2013/ ... -mkii.html

2. Electro-Theremin / Tannerin


This is based on the Gakken SX-150 synth kit. I replaced the resistor strip and touch pen with a multi-turn pot.

Again, I blogged the build: http://silverysqueaks.blogspot.jp/2013/ ... remin.html

It sounds pretty awful :lol: Here's some bad vibrations:

Great stuff, rotary speaker sounds sweet.

I was reading up on some of the DIY ribbon controllers people have made (using FSRs etc). Look convenient but there's something about your 'old skool' construction that appeals more. :D
