Thanks for the comments everyone. Jim, it does have a simple piezo hot glued to the underside of the cone.

I love the sound out of my little microcube- it seems to be quite forgiving with piezos.

Fantastic! Really nice, thanks for the post. Did I miss what you are using for a pickup/piezo? BTW nice playing as well.

  1. Great video. It sounds great, and you play it well.
  2. I came to the video page specifically intending to look for some reso videos, and yours was right at the top. It kind of freaked me out, in a good way.
