This is my new toy. I call it junknator 1. It is basically just a bunch of small iron and springs attached to each other and piece of wood. Contact and close micing + some delicate chosen effects give some nice sounds. I haven´t yet made any track by using it but sometime in future you will hear it in action. Maybe junknator 2 will materialize too.
And here is my latest purchase, Indian shruti box. I love the sound of Indian instruments but unfortunately it is nearly impossible to try and test them anywhere near where I live. I sold some records which I don´t listen anymore to finance this charming (but slightly dysfuncional) unit. Just can´t wait until I have enough spare time to toy with it.
