I don't hate contact mics, I hate people who do an entire album with nothing but a single contact mic and nothing interesting to mic up. that is the most uncreative done to death shit.

Going for purity of sound or tone is much more challenging.
Explore what something sounds like before you step all over the signal.

This has been one of my favorite builds.[/size]

:shock: Between the slab or armor plate and the scenery that's an awesome picture. How much does that...instrument weigh? That would be a beast to haul to any shows hah.

I seem to remember it weighing 44.5 lbs. 3/8" x 9" x 48" steel flitch plate with on hand parts + 15 minute build time.

But mass does have it's advantages. Spring decay / sustain is much longer and wave propagation is definitely improved depending on what nodal points I rest this thing upon. Wave response, character and harmonic series change vastly by moving the support points so dailing it in has been vexing at times. However, finding the nuances of sound this thing makes has been a blast and I can report - It makes a "pew-pew!" sound.
ODB-3, Echoplex and full wet SRV-2000 make for a good time.

Exploring the horizons of 21st century electric, non-idiomatic, improvisational solo performance in a non-linear Cage/Bailey/Beefheart/Ono idiom.

This rig from 2010 had Butoh dance accompaniment as the driving concept.

Love the speaker cabinet. I've been thinking about making a new baffle for my 4x10 cab that would allow for some kind of odd arrangement of horns and speakers. What do you need, a Jig-Saw to cut the holes right?

a CD player, mixer, digital multitrack recorder and a single, lonely multi FX? I'd like to think someone just kicked his ass for that using that lame setup at a show.
Pics of your lame setups or GTFO.
The magic is never in the wand anyway.

Mixer was $5, Distortion $5 and the pick-up was a gimme.
