     My name is Kurt Quinn. Ten years ago I envisioned a new instrument that could revolutionize the world of folk music. After a decade of development, I’m proud to present the bandrum. When combined with the natural power of twine, this hand-shaped cork transforms any ordinary banjo into an entirely new instrument. 

     In order to create the next one hundred bandrums, I need to raise a total of twenty-seven dollars and ninety-seven cents. If successfully funded, these first one hundred bandrums will be given to folk musicians, infusing the bandrum into the world of folk music forever. For as little as one dollar, you can be a part of the most revolutionary change in folk music since deodorant. 

Risks and challenges

Each bandrum will be handcrafted by me and I will be giving them to folk musicians for free. The main challenge in completing the project will be distributing the bandrums, but as I am in one of the most thriving artistic communities in the world, Los Angeles, it is a challenge I believe I can overcome.
