imagine trans boy sherlock dropping violin in high school to take up guitar because it’s more “manly” and jim knows but doesn’t say anything until their one-year anniversary when he gets sherlock a customized violin that has a more “masculine” feel and makes sherlock much more comfortable being seen playing, not that he’d admit it
A solid wood customized violin bow used by Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page during the two Knebworth Park, England concerts in August 1979. The bow was modified by mounting a quartz fiber optic cable at the bow’s ends to emit lighting effects on Pages’ command during his “Dazed and Confused” solo in the bands three and half hour set. Page bowed his Gibson Les Paul and waved it overhead, throughout the large tent and sky to emit beams of various dramatic neon-colored light and strobe-light effects from bow’s end, which climaxed in a spinning cone of red light. The light traveled through the fiber optic cables from argon and krypton lasers to a small lens that produced the beam to a Lucite rod attached to bow, which has many broken and frayed hairs from usage. Also present is the fiber optic cable.
Also on the Knebworth two day festival were Zeppelin chosen acts Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, The New Commander Cody Band, Fairport Convention, Chas and Dave and the New Barbarians; a group which featured Keith Richards and Ron Wood. At Knebworth, Zeppelin fans witnessed the return of the group to promote the groups much anticipated eighth studio album, In Through the Out Door (Swan Song, 1978). Unknowingly, the two shows would be the band’s last live concerts in England. The following year, shortly before embarking on a tour of the United States, drummer John Bonham died after an alcohol binge.
As a violinist, I find this customization job absolutely stunning. Not to mention I LOVE Jack Skellington. And maybe think Ryan Ross would make a good Jack… Anyways. Metallic turquoise Nightmare Before Christmas violin? Want.
I forgot to post these. It was for one of our last projects in my portfolio class. I designed custom Tim Burton/Danny Elfman themed violins that would be sold at a hypothetical fundraiser with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. The Corpse Bride one turned out to be my favorite~
Medic’s script is now working! And so is his minimap icon, and his faces are all mostly in check! I just have to make Archimedes, now… and then maybe look into doing custom violin sounds for his voice… ugh.
