"Neat idea, couple the bridge to a diaphragm for a victrola-type horn, like a string between 2 soup cans for the phone in the old tree-house.  First thought is an end-cap for 1/2 or 3/4 in copper might not have enough flex to act as a…"

Harold, I liked Shorty and the other git.  Welcome to the obsession.  I have too many and I keep building.   Looked like a neat painting of a cowboy (red shirt) on your wall.  Did you paint it?
