WEIRD INSTRUMENT ALERT! MIKU'S Hurdy Gurdy Kalimba Mechanical Sequencer


This wild instrument was created by Cigar Box Nation member, Miku and was submitted in the Musical Mutant Build-Off Contest.  He describes it as a "Human powered, 24 tone polyphony, 16th notes electric kalimba mechanical sequencer plus electric hurdy gurdy drone string." There are two separate outputs, 5 single coil pickups and a "hand of doom as an auto conductor."

Thanks Brian !!!

Miku is a true craftsman and his work is art.  I have loved watching his creations for years 

The new normal, I know it’s hard to remember, but get used to it?
