Product Description

This object purports to be a physical instantiation of Ode to Joy, the e e f g g f e d c c d f e d d part, starting at E8. The vertical columns are chimes, the whole object intended to rotate around a pin in the center and have each chime rung by a mallet in a fixed position around the outside. The chimes are the correct length to produce the tones intended, and I've found that similarly shaped brass objects printed by shapeways do indeed ring in what could be a pleasing manner, but I have no idea whether what comes out of this thing will be music, since having it done in brass is slightly more costly than I'm eager to spend right at the moment. So caveat emptor. I'd love it if a 3d printing enthusiast with more money than sense and a taste for Beethoven would go ahead and buy this, then tell me whether or not it works. I've made it available in the steel materials as well; I don't know if those will ring pleasantly (I doubt it) but they are much cheaper and it might be worth a shot.
