Hi there - I have some questions about setting up a few things from Core Electronics for a piece of music I am playing. I am not hugely tech savvy - so could use the help with knowing what products to put together.
I need a surface transducer that will connect to a 3.5mm output from a cassette tape recorder. The surface transducers will be placed on the head of a drum, which will be the transduced surface. What products would I need for this? I was thinking ADA 1785 (medium transducer), ADA 1552 (amplifier), what cable should I use to connect to the cassette deck - ADA1700? Will I need a battery unit to power the amplifier?
I also need two 10mm diameter flat button type 3-4.5V mobile phone vibrator connected to a battery holder powered by CR2032 battery. I was thinking POLOLU-1638 and ADA 1871. Would this work?
Finally I need two mechanical switches that have distinctive and audible sound when pressed or engaged. These will not be wired to anything, it is purely for the sound. I’m thinking COM-09276 toggle switch and either a rocker switch (COM-08837) or a push button switch (COM-09339).
Tools wise - I’m guessing I just need a soldering iron and solder. Is there anything else that I might need?
I realise this is a long, and slightly strange list of requests. If you are interested, it is in aid of the performance of a piece called ‘untitled three part construction’ by Michelle Lou. Here is a link to a video if you’re interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyK2TUtcMt8
