I ran into a different mechanical reverb recently at a horse
stable. I opened a big gate made of pipe and heard this
incredible squeal. The entire fence took up the squeal
and resonated all around the stables. I was entranced and
moved the gate back and forth for a while (while the stable-hand
eyed me suspiciously). I went to mycar to get my MD recorder to
catch this haunting sound...when I returned I found the stable-hand
thoroughly lubricating the gate's hinges....
