This is an instrument I made from an old dresser drawer and the broken handle of a shovel. It has a home built contact mic and functional tuning pegs that keep it in “tune.” This is one of the instruments used in Uchu Skeleton (listen here.)
Here are a couple quick recordings. The home made "pick up" is very sensitve so knocking on the instrument makes for great beats
In regard to photo quality:
When I am engrossed in a project documentation is never in the fore front of my mind. So I could apologize for the quality of the pictures or you could just get over it.
