Mechanically, the design looks very nice.  Electronically, it is 
pretty primitive and simple upgrades could improve it significantly.

The coil is unshielded, and the amplifier has no filter function 
included to reject either 60 cycle hum or other mechanical noise that 
isn't part of the seismic signal.  Still it does pretty well with what 
it's got.

Are you interested in changing anything at this point?
