2019-12-08 (Su) PhonoMug COMPLETED

Bamboo skewers created different frequencies, as any elastic material should, but it wasn't a crisp sound. I shortened three of the skewers, but I was not satisfied with their envelope either.

Music wire is available at some hardware stores, and one place near me sells it. I cut some 1.4mm diameter wire into two lengths and arranged them, so six different lengths hung out of the bridge. Since the purpose of the project was to experiment with various sounding cavities and tine material, this was a valuable experiment.

I narrated a one-minute video to demonstrate the metal and bamboo tines on a coffee mug and a plastic drinking cup. Below the video, there is a link for anyone who wishes to make their own phono mug on a laser cutter.
