Restoring a 1930s polyphonic synthesizer

Containing 163 vacuum tubes and over 1,000 custom capacitors, the Novachord weighed nearly 500 pounds and was roughly the size of two spinet pianos.

Re: Circle of Titles VII

Oooo, excited for this.

The kids (9 and 11) are already bantering around zany 9- and 11-year-old ideas. Apologies for any excessive zaniness that may result.

... and they don't sound fun to begin with.

But thinking is not my strong suit.

Re: Circle of Titles VII

I feel bad signing up for this as I stiffed in the last one of these I entered (I will finish that one, someday, I swear, for reals, really, truly, no joke), but the kids have expressed some interest in music making and have stated their desire to participate. We are in.

Re: How to metal?
