You won’t believe it’s not an actual guitar! Stringy is a tiny guitar synthesiser soldering kit from Boldport.

Stringy synthesizes guitar sounds using an efficient implementation of the Karplus–Strong string-plucking synthesis algorithm implemented on a tiny PIC microcontroller. It can play notes over five octaves (twelve notes per octave) in either acoustic or electric guitar style.

This was a collaborative project between Boldport and James Hutchby from MadLab. Boldport thanks James for his ingenuity and for allowing them to re-implement his original project.

Note: requires through-hole soldering!

Stringy was Project #14 of the Boldport Club.
