Very impressive!

 

Does your bellows strap control volume (beyond on/off)?

Thanks. Volume is controlled by a sliding type potentiometer between the two ends. It is spring loaded closed, so the harder you pull, the greater the volume. It's a very crude simulation of bellows control but does allow some expression which was absent in the original keyboard, which had only four preset volume stages. Some additional volume control is afforded by having the speaker mounted in one of the inner 'mating' surfaces.

As opposed to a confined cat?

 

(As a matter of principle, I wouldn't want any uncertainty in the matter.)

If there was a "like" button I would have pushed it on this...

It is actually a DOG - one of three in the house!
