Music Thing: Paper Pipe Organ

Paper Pipe Organ

Each week Tom Whitwell of Music Thing highlights the best of the new music gear that's coming out, as well as noteworthy vintage equipment:

It's not new (it was patented in England in 1990), it's not electronic, and it entirely lacks both LEDs and glowing VU meters, but who wouldn't want to build a fully working, user-programmable Paper Pipe Organ? The phenomenally complicated kit is available for £20. On the left hand side is a tiny bellows, in the middle is a pressure indicator, to tell you if you've pumped enough, and on the right hand side are the pipes and the punched-paper roll which chooses the notes. Sweet!
