I made a thing about this beautiful yet little know instrument of Peter. Hope you like it, it was a true labor of love.

Great work, Hainbach! I wasn't entirely sure of the utility of triple Deerhorns just looking at pictures, but this totally dispels that doubt.

Thanks so much everybody! To small corrections: according to Darrin I had the tuning procedure upside down, so use the upper poti to tune response. Also, Peter's zero is all knobs to 1 o'clock.

This last version of the Deerhorn is really something. I wonder if it is possible to hook up some bigger antennas to those screws somehow? It looks like the bananas are in the way of playing when patched up.

Are the brass screws in contact with the antennas? If so it could be an easy thing connecting to bigger antennas and away from the patching.

Brass screws are indeed soldered to the antenna, so you should not unscrew them as that would break the connection. Pomonas are almost a must for the Deerhorn, the Bugbrand bananas are a bit too high indeed.

Good to know, thanks! :tu:

Looking forward to see what you can do with it in future videos.

This video gave me a closer look at the Deerhorn Organ. Up until now Tetrazzi has been my go-to machine for solitary improvisation. Deerhorn would great for this, too, and a mellower alternative to Tetrazzi.

Thanks,
Richard

Thanks for the demo video (and your other videos)! I think I now have to add the Deerhorn to the want list.

Does anyone know what exactly the switches do to the stereo position of the oscillators?

I initially thought it would flip the relation of toward = right and away = left, but this doesn't seem to be the case. It seems like the switch in the up position allows a slight bleed to the opposite channel, rather than it being solely hard left or right in the down position.

I picked one of these up after watching your video about 30 times, Hainbach. :hail:

Haven't even bought banana cables yet, and I'm already leaning toward selling all of my euro gear and getting a PB as well. Haven't felt this inspired by a piece of gear in ages.
