Distortion Spring-board Instrument

To design and build an electronic instrument to be used in music production and sound design.

Project Description

A piezoelectric transducer operates as a contact microphone, picking up the vibrations emitted from the spring as it is plucked. This signal is then inserted directly into a clone of the Blackout Effectors Musket Fuzz guitar pedal, in order to create harsh percussive sounds.

Project Findings

The construction of this project vastly improved my knowledge of electronics and my soldering skills. As well as this, it highlighted the importance of organisation and time management.
