A stringed instrument of my own creation


Uploaded on May 13, 2024 (and last updated on May 14, 2024)

This is an instrument I created for a physics homework in my high school. It consists of a metal box and two tunable strings made from old fishing line. The assignment called for it to be made entirely from recycled materials. I called him "Caustaud" (it means "Robust" in French) ironically because it's rather fragile, but also in reference to the koto.

28 notes, from A1 to C4, and 6 "sound effects" were recorded with a cell phone, and then edited with Polyphone.

Sorry about the names, when I change the instrument's name the samples are modified on Polyphone, I can't figure out why.

Extra considerations: Use my soundfont as you like, as long as you credit me :p
