Can any A/V & Music peeps chime in?

"I hope to make/find/hack a coil that can drive a tiny magnet I can attach to and use to drive a violin body directly, in order to help me identify and visualize modal behaviors on specific parts of an instrument.

I think it might be clearer to discern nodal patterns of substructures in tricky situations this way than the usual practice of immersing the whole instrument in a sound field, looking for sympathetic resonances, which usually excite and show patterns related only to dominant substructures.

It might be as easy as dis-assembling a speaker, but also might be more complicated, and require making something to suit, and I don't know enough to know where to start.

Julius' Bluetooth speaker had an internal part, causing short-circuiting. The other Bose speaker may need a new battery. Emily's food processors needed new blade parts. Her Aerogarden LED panel may need a new AC adapter. The expandable hose needed a new end. Zach's hair dryer behaved as expected, as did Rusty's Dell DLP projector. Carmen's iPhone 4S needed magnet wire to replace the torn pad. Her Duraflame space heater needed a new safety switch. The white-noise machine generated bad output. Steph's glasses had its metal gap close up. Danielle's HP laptop produced unexpected output (bad drivers?). D4 ... See MoreSee Less
