Prop Shopping

Visited Overflow in Mayfield, my favourite junk store and scored some great sonic props!!

The biggest spring I’ve ever seen!! Would be 300mm diameter, 2 metres long & does laser klangs like a mofo!

35mm platter from a projector

70mm platter from a projector!

A couple of very large very resonant pots

A resonant tray, 2 egg cup springs and a big heavy old cowbell!

Good shopping!!

 

 

UPDATE:
Me & my Dad went for drive on Sunday, and we managed to call past Overflow for a quick second visit… And guess what? I bought a second large spring/auger! I thought buying the first one was already nuts as it is so large Its quite hard to fit in the car! But after playing with it a bit & thinking about its potential (bass shaker/contact mic effected loop with feedback) I just had to go back & get the second one…. They are both similar length – about 2 metres = 6.5 x 12″ vinyl/feet – a GIANT stereo spring reverb with cross feedback loops seems in my future!
