INSTRUMENTS

Really nice sounding mbira with half a cigar box and some rake tines. 

2018

Electric Mbira

One of the most disgusting builds ever. At least round #5 with a Synare clone. Smashed it into a cookie tin with a screwdriver 'cause the drill was out of juice....The output never works right, but it makes some great noises.. sometimes.

Horrible Drum Synth

APC in a box.  What more can you say.

APC 1000

Dub Siren hacked from three 99 Cent Store toy sirens.  Well worn at this point. Capacitive bend on the po-po siren.

Mbira

Stupid photo "theremin" with 555 timer and photo resistors beside it's old friend--a small pentatonic mbira I built for the boy, but keep stealing back because it sounds so nice.

Photo Theremin + Mbira

Hacked voice recorder with pitch adjustment and two loop lengths.

2014

Lo-Fi Looper

Soldered and scotch-taped this together in about an hour before CFO 2018 summer tour.  One-shot, long-play, and loop playback.  Pitch adjustment wired backwards.  Slowly self-destructing. Built off a cheap Chinese voice recorder chip. Sounds horrible. We love it.

2018

Lo-Fi Looper

The classic CFO mbira sound. Backwards steel rake tines on a cigar box with a contact mic + the old Ototo touch board wired up for good measure(before we lost it at Fusion Festival... the board that is-- mbira is still in full effect).
