Quick internet search later - you might want to change your mind MFG, judging by this video :mrgreen:

After reading the words 'sewage', 'residue', 'bummer' and 'scoop' in fairly rapid succession I'm not sure I want to click on any of those links! :)

At 65-inches the lowest one should sound stunning - I've got a reasonable collection of wind chimes (both inside and out), and my longest one is only 36 inches ;)

According to one of the user reviews on that Amazon link, your tubes are around 2-inches in diameter too. Really looking forward to hearing them in due course!


Martin

I think they are about 3/4 inches in diameter, takes quite a breeze to make them sound.
They’ve got a wooden striker attached to a large round metal plate, to catch the wind.
I have made a recording already, that’s part of a collage, I’ll try and dig it out, and give you a link.
Trouble is Martin, the truth is, I’ve been noodling so much that I’ve got about another 3 CD's worth of unorganised stuff kicking about in two computers, I always intend to master it all, but tomorrow never comes!
I’ll try and reinstate my label links, I get a bit nervy about leaving them here all the time, don’t know why.

Oh shit, here we go again, nowhere to put the modular, first of a long line of issues probably.

Oh dear, that positive streak didn't last long Tony :beamup:

Stay cheerful - it will all work out in the end! ;)

Yes Martin, I’m not well known for my tenacity, trouble is I’m one of those people with lots of "little things" micro keyboards, small synths, they take up a lot,of space, when I just had a couple of big keyboards on a stand I had a lot more room, I’m always on the verge of consolidating my little keyboards, but I can’t, as there isn’t one big keyboard that can replace them all, that’s why I still have them.
This Arturia Rackbrute is a lovely case, but it’s a bit "gawky"
What I need is a Moog One, and a Yamaha Montage, they would make a good desert island couple.

I seem to remember that you have a pocket operator Tony. If I'm right, Thonk are selling a Eurorack mounting kit for those modules if it would help.

Thanks Andy! amazing!
Strange about the PO32, it sat here for months without getting used, now it’s on every track!
It’s going to run out of tricks soon, as I’m not a rhythm expert able to program, but I’m having great fun playing around with the preset patterns.
