                I wandered into this music store on Granville Island and met a lovely lady who had just gotten a shipment of singing bowls. We tried them out and I recorded them on the H4n and did a quick video that I patched the audio to. This is the second edit.

                • Acoustic Thumb Pianos, batch 1


                  from Ed Devane Added 200 0 0

                  First batch of my variation on the ancient kalimba instrument. This design doubles the amount of notes from each tine by bending the metal strip around a piece of metal tube, resulting in a 2 voice instrument, bass and treble (accompaniment and melody). Get in touch if you're interested in buying one of these or similar. Electric versions coming soon.
