Metta Spring Box / Electric Percussive Noise Foley Sound Instrument
Metta Spring box uses two large springs sensitively amplified via dual piezo transducer pickups sent to a 1/4" output jack.
Two toggle switches allow the player to turn on or off either pickup, resulting in different tonal and percussive options.
In combination with effect pedals, possibilities are endless for sound effects, noise music, soundscape work, and all other sonic exploration.
