The Savart\'s Wheel consists of a series of disks attached to a motorized axis. The rims of the disks are rippled. The sound of the Savart\'s Wheel is produced when a resonator with a plectrum is held against the rims of the disks while they are spinning. As the speed of the rim of the bigger disk is higher than the one of the smaller disks, the pitch is higher when the plectrum is held to a bigger disk.
