Instructables announced the winners of their Art of Sound contest – as expected, some very sweet projects make up the group the finalists. The top prize went to RocketScientist’s Homebrew Marimba how-to which includes instructions for wrapping your own mallets, an interesting project in it’s own right –

First & second prize went to the Nixie Tube Visualizer and Fretless Guitar projects respectively. Head over to the list of winners to check out the runner up projects as well.
