I have a rather different request to MMD readers. I am planning
on building a MIDI-operated bottle organ a bit like the Peterson
/Gulbransen/QRS beer bottle organ that has been around for a number
of years. I am not really a beer drinker so I will use a different
range of bottles.
By far the most important part of the whole system is the nozzle that
directs air across the bottles. I want a design that is rather more
elegant than just an open tube somehow attached to a bottle top --
I don't want it to look like a high school science project. The
Peterson system appears to have a nice looking rigid wooden nozzle
with a slit about 1/16 by 3/4 inch that delivers the air.
All my Googling for information has not got me very far. Does anyone
have any help, ideas or suggestions?
