I am currently designing a project where I want to use my arduino to control a struck musical instrument. I believe the best way to do this is by using solenoids (as used in player pianos) such as those by Black Knight. (6V Tubular push type Solenoid at Farnell, sorry,was going to post a link, but am not allowed as this is my first post).
After some reading around (my electronics knowledge is a touch limited) it appears that by using mosfets to control solenoids velocity control can also be attained. My real question is which mosfet?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
