This is not a complex build and is not really finished yet in my eyes. I would like to add a few more features and fine tune it here and there. I see it mostly as a proof of concept. That being said, its is a lot of fun to play with.
It can be played in many ways and produce a lot of different sounds. It can be used as a drum with sticks or it can be played using a pick or fingers on the string with a slide. My favorite sounds so far though have come with using a bow and varying degrees of pressure on the hinge holding the string to change the tone. I have put lights and a contact mic so it can be played through an amp and sounds pretty great. I will add recordings soon... maybe.
