Gear Review - Greenwood Electronic HNW Tin Can.

Bought this from Dan Greenwood AKA Diagram A at this past Tuesday's show. As you can see from the picture this is a 9-volt powered tin can. Inside are two or three oscillators interconnected by tilt switches. Once you plug that battery in, the can is on and generating sound. Any slight tap scrambles the oscillations and makes the sounds freak out.

Depending on the angle of the can, you can get low end growls, repeating patterns of chirps, lots of clicks and other harsh sounds. Shaking and moving it around vary the results. Fun with strobe lights.

As far as my experience with boutique gear goes, this guy has a high bang-for-your-buck value sitting around $30.
