These hand samwitches enclosures have been sitting around in a box for a few years, they were one of the first screen printed enclosures we had done with Jordan from Pine Box. They are from late 2018 or early 2019. They got forgotten about when we moved to South Philly 3 years ago. The design is a little more basic that we ended up getting into it’s a bit retro-Leccy.
The handpainted ones are from the same time and feature a wrap around design.
The controls are:
side switch – on/off
top knob – volume
bottom knobs – pitch
These two knobs are interactive.
One gives you wonky steps up or down in pitch, the other is a slipper slope.
lightning switch – theremin mode (half chaos)*
This switch disengages the pitch knobs and engages the two light dependant resistors on the front panel, so you can use your hand and a light source to make it do crazy oscillation things.
thunder switch – touch sensitive mode (pure chaos)**
When you engage this switch, you activate the piezo discs inside, which means the unit is sensitive to touch and movement. Sometimes it will spiral up, sometimes, they’ll spiral down, sometimes they hardly do a thing! Sometimes it’s bedlam.
* The original version had this mode tied to the pitch knobs, so using the knobs would limit the range, we’ve separated the two so there’s less to get confused with and there’s more range to play with.
** It responds to a light touch, no need to beat the poop out of it. Please don’t abuse the wee fella!
