MELLOTRON WORKSHOP AT
MONEYPIT and several Mellotronists visited The Gatherings (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - USA) and put together a Mellotron Workshop for the evening of December 11, 2004.
My part of the demo started a few days before...
...when yours truly dismantled a Mellotron M400. -->
Do not use these pages for instructions for building a Skellotron. You have to start with a working machine first (which I obviously didn't). Then you have to be clever with sawhorses and power tools. These guys seem to do it right.
The image above of the house with the deer in the front yard has nothing to do with The Gatherings or Mellotrons. We don't know whose house it is. It was just handy.
MELLOTRON TIP: If you have a cat, I recommend putting all the panels onto your Mellotron. Cats love the way the tapes move and like nothing better than to get their claws and teeth into 'em.
Brad's bird Quick Draw Macaw also likes Mellotrons.
