This is a real attic-special. Christian found this at Hobgoblins in London. I single stringed oddity with a small gramophone horn as it’s resonator it was allegedly the instrument du jour for about six months sometime in the 1910’s, but soon fell out of favour because, well because it sounded just so damned awful.

From Christian's private collection, a very simple but effective workhorse guitar. "I've never managed to better the quality of this little ditty, with 3 dynamic layers, no round robins it has sat on countless scores of mine.

It's a Fender Telecastor through a vintage 15w Fender Tweed amp played with just a hint of vibrato. It's got what I would call that totally English sound to it.

Quite literally translated; "box". Originating from Peru, this amazing instrument has infected latin music all over south America find it's way back to Europe via Flamenco pioneers like Paco De Lucia and finally into use in popular music in the UK by it's appeal as a great accompaniment for acoustic gigs and especially small promotional tours for rising stars. It sounds like a little drum-and-bass kit but it's easy to transport! It is played by slapping the main body of the front panel for a "kick" style sound. The slapping the top edges to resonate some ingenious snares inside the box, to create a "snare" type sound. Continue reading Spitfire Audio Labs Cajon KONTAKT
