Default 0.6my aluminium ribbon

This ribbon is made of 0.6my aluminium and 12my paper back.
The ribbon is 27 mm wide and 1050 mm long. This gives 2,2 0hm,
so no need for transformer or resistor.

The aluminium just have to be thin. I am using imitated leaf silver on a roll (aluminiun).
Allways nice too make the improbable possibel.The sound this ribbon makes is very ear pleasing.
I have not heard every thing one the planet,but this is the bedst ribbon I have heard.

Very nice,Do you have a source for the material?
As you said that you have a roll of it ,I have been trying to find some thin aluminium for years that is long enough and wide enough to Do a large ribbon!

All I have been able to find are 6" X 6" sheets at a craft store.
