“I am working on an art installation for a holiday event in midtown Detroit- we will have five 10 foot tall musical sculptures and…we wanted to…amplify them, which is where the piezos came in. I’m wiring up the first one the this weekend, to try out the set up (…we’re tying together 3 piezos to send into the Cortado). If things go well I’ll have an order coming for 4-5 more next Monday.”

“I’m an audio engineer, producer, musician. Always thought piezos would be much more useful if they didn’t sound so tinny, and this circuit and everything makes that quest a whole lot simpler. I’m interested in seeing what they can add to a recording. Should be interesting..

“I want to build the tin can mic for creepy voice over sound or in my personal studio for the more authentic bands I get…. I have been wanting to build one for so long but after seeing, and hearing, the versatility on the instructables article…I knew this was the design I’d been waiting for!” — Bunny DAST, game designer, Houston TX
“Thanks for making the Cortado available online. I would like to use your device to engage middle and high school students in STEM subjects and encourage them to think about engineering as a career. I plan to use it a group activity. They will make the microphone to work with a music circuit I’ve designed and a speaker.” — N.S., North Carolina State University College of Engingeering
“I’m mostly interested in experimenting… I also work with a lot of new music groups in the Bay Area, many of which are always chasing new sounds … First possible use will come in a week and a half for a recording of new piano music… I’m planning on leaving a couple of channels for them and look forward to hearing what I get…” — M.M., San Francisco CA
