Bride Of Synthog - keyboard and wire harness

The Bride Of Synthog's keyboard (the first of three) is one octave and made of painted mat board cemented to two layers of mousepad material, which provides springiness.  Each key has a wire and a 10k resistor underneath, and the keys are mounted on a wooden board.

The wires from the circuit to the keys are now soldered onto the bridge pads and harnessed, but aren't connected to the keyboard yet.  The enclosure has an oblong knockout on top that will allow all three harness sets to pass when the other two keyboards are built (if that day ever comes).

I got two commercial grade plastic storage tubs for free at a convenience store as they were being discarded.  Our cat Sissy is inspecting them.

I got a little stereo mic for 25 cent at a garage sale.

I got the soul of a junk man.
