Sound Design : String and piezo

en_tete_optimisation

I wanted to try this mic for a while to capture metallic resonances, it’s done!medium_shadow-712

Curious to see what kinds of sounds I could find, I spent my morning to play with this capsule. I used strings of different sizes (guitar, violin, bass) and Shadow 711, simple and cheap.
Pleasant surprises by attaching string pots, they serve as support to amplify and distort the string vibrations.

-A string stretched attached to a large pot, I added a little bit of reverb:

Each metal support makes a different sound. The resonance frequencies change with the size, shape, alloy, …

That gives a lot of possibilities. The most interesting currently remains the good old cooking pans.  If you find other nice stands or have ideas, please let know.
