"I've had an affection with ammo boxes since I was a real little guy prowling the army surplus stores over fifty years ago.  I was waiting to see something like this.  Have you considered making a matching amp?"

"hi bairfoot, thx for taking the time. Have you thought about embedding the piezo in liquid glue, it could still float then and may it may help damp the highs. I might try your design sometime:) Cheers, Richard"

my nephew in louisiana once talked about making some kind of pickup that floats in oil of some kind,but i havent tried it yet.that tuna can piezo idea was something i wanted to try to see how it would work for reverb.i seen a pic of someone else doing that same thing in a different application. that is what gave me the idea,although the springs i used are not really well suited for this application i still got some results. since i built that i have found a new type of spring that i think will take it to a better level for results.you are welcome to use any idea that i have tried because its all about inspiration we give and inspiration we recieve.thanks for the liquid advice i may attempt to experiment in that area soon.

howdy richard, i just stopped by to answer your question about the tuna can piezo reverb.at first it had lots of highs,so i toned it down just a bit by placing a piece of foam rubber right under the floating piezo.than kinda took away from the reberb effect but its still obvious in its effect.thanks for your question.
