Thumb Pianos


Recommended Posts

[img]http://images.mp3.com/mp3s/73/resources/218/401/files/2184010.jpg[/img] this guy makes some very cool thumb pianos from tins and pins. check his stuff at [url=http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/165/thumb_piano_project.html]mp3.com[/url] (this is not spam, i don't know the guy). listen to "Brassy 2". most of the music is loops w/ delays, but each "tune" is made with one instrument, and there's an [i]awesome[/i] photo of each one. very artistic and inspiring. the music is simple, but the project is damn creative. there have been posts here in the past about DIY instruments (popmusic & alphajerk have cool stuff), have you made a thumb piano? i have found some how-to sites, but nothing great (most are kindergarden-type projects). a big tin bass one could be cool... what you got?

thanks, pop. there's an actual Lark of the Morning [i]store[/i] too, in Seattle (there may be others, i can't find my catalog). some cool stuff, and some cheaply made stuff. lots of good small stringed instruments that all look the same but have different weird names :D . they did have some gourd kalimbas there, but i'm liking the idea of old tin, for sound and looks. i hadn't heard of [i]Twink[/i], it seems very... well, the name is right. hey, there a video i just saw (daft punk) where the band is small monkeys with human faces, and they have cool gear! it looks like the keyboard monkeyman had a re-painted 303, and the guitar was wildly customized, too. they eat their instruments at the end.
