Electronic, pitch bending, thumb piano
Jamoflange is a musician and odd-instrument builder who had made pitch-bending projects like the pitch-bending frame drum, and pitch bending floor tom. This new instrument is remarkably cool – it’s an electronic pitch-bending thumb piano.
The great thing about this instrument is that he uses guitar pickups, so when plugged into an amp, he gets some fantastic bell overtones, crunchy funk, and all sort of other fabulous sounds.
