Hi,

I was concidering to buy a guitar banjo (I want a bass banjo really Smile but a guitar attached to a drum (or skin, what you want) is as old as the music. There are resonator guitars (Dobro), but are there any guitars using a cymbal as resonator? What would it sound like? Could sizzles be used? How about amplification (I think about Stockhausen's Gong in Mikrophonie 2)? The strings drive the cymbal, but could it be also the other way around? How about bowing...?

Okay, I'll take a broom stick, some hardware, a cymbal and a string, if it isn't done already so I can hear the effect.

Good idea, Wout Very Happy

Lets hear a recording if your "Cymbroomjo" ever comes together.

Another one: how about a vibraphone guitar/piano, using resonant tubes with rotational valves underneath each string?

I got to imagineering such things one night in the chatroom and Shane gave me the following link:

It's a showcase of unusual percussion and string instruments. Enjoy!
