The mellotron was widely used by bands like The Beatles. Check 'Strawberry Fields' for some prime mellotron work. Fun fact: Trent Reznor now owns the mellotron used in the recording. Throbbing Gristle built and played devices similar to Make's in the 70's.
Bre Pettis and Eric Beug create a mellotron-like instrument out of walkmans and then go crazy and hack a sequencer into an arduino!
