Well, after having won 3 competitions with the ‘iPhonograph’ (see post) I moved on to something a bit funkier, Googly Sound, and built to represent a sense of quirky fun.
Googly Sound was created using old car horns (from an Indian taxi minus the rubber bulb which I have saved for another project – don’t discard anything interesting!) and I have used it to play an iPhone and to amplify a guitar. It works! The guitar amplified through Googly Sound was quite sufficient but just to increase the power I used a DI box which made for less distortion.
Here is what it looks like, an alien!
