Another Weird Instrument (Tuesdays)

Hello fellow music lovers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, its time for us to once again take a look at a truly strange musical instrument. I hope you guys are ready for this week’s post. Now with out further ado, let’s get started!

I love the sound of this one!  The Gravikord is a very unique string instrument that was invented by Bob Grawi. (oddmusic.com)  It’s a little longer than 4 feet in length and weighs about 5 pounds. (oddmusic.com) It’s made out of a stainless steel frame and has many different parts. (oddmusic.com) They include a tuning machine, a wood tuning block, and a carved bridge with a piezoelectric pickup. (oddmusic.com) The Gravikord also has roots in African culture. (oddmusic.com)
