yes, this looks interesting. also good way to expereiment with plate reverb. £18 postage to the UK! not as cheap as it first looks.
thanks a lot for your detailed response!
You can do some really cool stuff with exciters. We did this project a couple of years ago, where we used a string quartet as loudspeakers/resonators, working with the strings' sympathetic resonations: http://www.kvsu.net/projects/acousmatic-strings/The sounds were all generated with c-sound and processed via modular synths, then sent to the exciters.
