DIY Rubber Band Guitar Meets FX (effects pedals)

Earlier this week I posted a video of this rubber band instrument I made. In this video, I plug it into various guitar effects to come up with some cool sounds. It actually makes some great experimental tones.

Intro - 0:00
Rubbery Swirls - 0:27
Dimension Stretcher - 1:03
Fantastic Elastic - 2:03
Burning Rubber - 2:37

See the build video here:
