Toy Instruments (Hardcover)
Toy Instruments compises an eye-popping collection of musical toys made between the 1950s and 1990s. Created to excite children about learning how to play an instrument, the toys turned out to be very fun for adults as well. Just ask David Bowie; he used the Stylophone in his song "Space Oddity." Culled from author Eric Schneider's personal collection, Toy Instruments explores this niche of the toy industry, doing so with an informative and humorous approach that demonstrates how even in today's world of Guitar Hero and Wii, these musical toys are emblematic, and enigmatic, artifacts from bygone eras. As DJ Spooky...
Nebulophone Mini Arduino Synthesizer Kit
We love the sweet bleeping sound of electronic music. One of our favorite pioneers is Raymond Scott (and if that name doesn't mean anything to you, shame on you and look him up). Apart from his awesome musical output, his inventions reign supreme as some of the coolest things ever created (if only he wouldn't have been so secretive). When we first heard the Nebulophone, it sounded like a bunch of Scott's inventions all crammed into one. Into one easy-to-build, DIY kit, we could love and share with you. So we did. The Nebulophone is freakin' awesome and really fun to play. It's sort of like a Stylophone on crack - you use a stylus to play a note - but that's about where the similarities end. The Nebulophone has all sorts of fun buttons and dials to alter the waveform; adjust decay, portamento, keyboard mapping, and arpeggiation; and so much more. Plus it's got a light controlled analog low-pass filter (adjustable, naturally) that adds even more fun. Our first song created on the Nebulophone is called, "Ty's Goatee" - what's yours? Get a Nebulophone today, enjoy assembling it tomorrow, and begin rocking out the day after. The Nebulophone - so much bleeping fun. IMPORTANT NOTE This is a KIT. Which means that you have to assemble it... which is the way kits typically work. You will need some simple soldering skillz and a screwdriver.
