"Now I have soldered inside 3 ft and half of bronce.  The sound is something never heard, a little bit of Sitar.  I make my experiments with one single string, I've noticed that there is more time of vibration."

You will see in the photos a new way to do a resonator.  Is a copper/nikel soldering rod tin soldered on the inside of the brass bell.  It makes an interesting sound.  I will try to put inside how many I can.  See More

than you mario sir for spending time in study of my work.many of my ideas were pure inspiration from others that build things as we do,but also many of my ideas were as we say original because i have taken time to study them in my mind before i start to build them with my hands.science,math,geometry,just to name a few were my childhood friends when i was learning as a young child.i must give credit to lineage and genetic traits as my father and his father were the same as i am with the spirit of invention.
