Are you ready? Are you really? Then take a look at this bad boy.


PHWOAR

How sexy is that.


It's called a cajon. It's a box that you sit on. And tap. As you can see.

Thought/opinions on this wonderful contraption?

You're being serious? You've never seen one?

I've seen boxes you can sit on, but I've never heard of one called an instrument.

Best instrument:

The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?

I think Dulcimers sound beautiful. Who's with me on that?


*Sigh* I think I spend too much time on Facebook cos I just tried to 'like' your post...
I agree completely, beautiful instruments.

Probably the one you can make music with. Definitely the absolute best instrument.

But I'm going to go with the hammered dulcimer.

Just look at how badass this thing is.

Holy balls.

I've known that sound before, and I've heard of a hammered dulcimer, but I did not know the two were one.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE PHYSICAL EMBODIMENT OF HAPPINESS, WEEPING, IN A STRAIGHT WAY.

But yeah the box is pretty cool too, I guess.

Not as gorgeous as the bazantar:

The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

*brass instrument with two bells*


WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!?!? It's like... an Altonium and a Euphonium combined into one!

Also, for all you theremin lovers, check out a band called The Winston Jazz Routine. Their name is a bit misleading as they don't play jazz, but their second album Sospiri makes extensive use of the Theremin.

Is that one of those really big analogue synths from the 70's?

Because I want it. Right now.

I only get to kiss her where she's sore

There's snares inside a cajon, it's not just a cardboard box
My drummer made one a few years ago.
