I have always been a packrat and tinkerer.
So, naturally, I liked to build my own instruments and noisemakers when I had the materials for it.
Anything that vibrates and changes pitch is fair game.
I made many attempts, but never mastered building electronics.
Some of my simple guitar-based instruments worked pretty well, though.
I once played “The Electric Stick” with Carey Loren’s Monster Island and MSBR, from Japan.
MSBR were so impressed that they put a video of me on their website.
I ended up giving the The Electric Stick away to Davin Brainard, of Princess Dragon-Mom, during a housecleaning Marsha Postel and I had in our Detroit apartment.
I recently uncovered some old parts in storage that may be useful.
So, maybe I will make something again, soon.
