We present an experimental set-up that allows to study both controlled and uncontrolled synchronization between a variety of different oscillators. Two experiments are presented where uncontrolled synchronization between two types of identical oscillators is investigated. First, uncontrolled synchronization between two Duffing oscillators is investigated and second, uncontrolled synchronization between two coupled rotating elements is discussed. In addition to experimental results we provide both analytical and numerical results that support the experimental results.
