In this instructable, I will show you how to make a simple electronic piano with common components. It uses capacitors and resistors, so you could easily modify the circuit. When the project is finished you will have a working simple circuit that can produce a variety of tones.

Of course, there are a couple of instructables that already feature such a circuit, but this is an Electronic Piano similiar to the one designed by sholtob. For reference, the original sholtob article is here while a great tutorial on building it is here. For the enclosure I used an old CD case, so it will easy to hold, and to keep the circuit well.

This is the video of my electronic piano

Step 1: Parts and tools

Here is all you will need:
- (1) CD case

- (6) Tacticle Switch / Buttons
- (1) Flashing LED RGB (optional colour)
- (7) Resistor 1K Ohm
- (1) Ceramic Capacitor 0,1uF
- (1) Electrolit Capacitor 10uF
- (1) Speaker 8 Ohm
- (1) 9 V battery
- (1) 9 V battery holder with switch / Battery Clip
- Shrink tubing
- Jumper wire
- Male header extended (optional)
- Blackhousing / female 1x1 header (optional)

- Soldering iron
- Solder
- Hot glue
- Mini drill
- Pliers
- Cutter
- Helping hands (if you don't have it, you can build it from my helping hands instructable)
can you send me the fritzing file <br>neorecasata@rocketmail.com
<p>I am Monish Meher from India I tried this project on a PCB.</p><p>And NeoRecasta here is your file</p>
<p>This looks so cool! I'm gonna make one as soon as the parts get here from taydaelectronics.com!</p>
Good luck, and tell me how it goes :)
Please add schematic :)
Love it <br>
Thanks, glad you like it :)
Thank you so much :)
