    A proper musical saw will get you 4 octaves. The saw in your garage might give you two.

    Try it some time, it's kinda fun.

    Here's Ave Maria on a saw, with accompanyment.

    Probably and older one will work better than a new one.
    Really ! could you perhaps explain why you came to this decision? Or like me are you just having a bit of a laugh? Anyway yes I have heard saws played before. I wouldn't buy any of their music or even listen if I had a choice. I SAW A guy on youtube singing etc and recording his own voice over and over harmonizing sounded amazing to me he played it in the street from scratch. I think the call it a louper recorder or something sounds like the old echo chamber some bands inc the Shadows used in the sixties. However this new type of machine is way different when it comes to sound really fantastic. I will see if I can find it. Alistair

    Yup. Of course you could play on the spine of the saw, but I'm sure the musicians want to be able to use the bow on both the back and front of the saw for different tones and whatnot.

    That was pretty good. Reminds me of a draftsman I once worked with, who had gone through a nasty divorce, where he was to divide all their possessions in half. So he got his chainsaw....

    There are also musical roads:

    Musical subway lines?

    I was trying to find a video of a subway or light rail train that seemed to play music from the PWM drive to its electric motors...
