I am planning on making a musical instrument where I require the conversion of vibration of a material to voltage. The idea is to make a percussion instrument where I hit a plate made of a certain type of material. Based on the different areas on which I hit the plate, the vibrations will be different and after converting the vibrations to voltage, I will take the FFT of the signals to differentiate the different areas on which I hit the material and map it to produce a particular sound. I know that piezoelectric sensor is a material which converts pressure to voltage but I am not sure if it will be robust enough. Is there any alternative I can use?
