Title: Not DIY, but still awesome
Post by: m-Kresol on January 27, 2014, 03:25:04 PM
My brother found something pretty awesome:



great idea if you ask me. but maybe, that's because I've played drums and percussion for eight years before switching to guitar.

I seen one of the guitarist from Fleet Foxes use one on Austin City Limits last year. I instantly had to google the contraption since I never seen anything like it. Pretty cool device.

Wow, and only $30 USD,  I may have to get one just to play with it

Neato!

I seen one of the guitarist from Fleet Foxes use one on Austin City Limits last year.

Double neat!

That's actually pretty impressive. It's rare to see an 'innovative' guitar product that I really like, but that's one.

My birthday is in July, and I'm open to receiving Christmas presents from strangers.

Reminds me of the sound of a hammered dulcimer/zither, very cool!

This is neat. It reminds me of a prepared guitar duet I did with a friend of mine where he put corks in between his strings and I tapped rhythms on them while he changed fretted notes...but way more controllable.

Wow, and only $30 USD, 

+$10 for shipping.

I might have to break down and get one of these.  I'll bet it really shines with open tunings.

That makes some cool sounds. How does it attach to the guitar? Is it permanent?

I can't tell how it attaches exactly, but it looks like in two parts of the video, it's in different positions on the same guitar.
