MISSED THE KICKSTARTER? It's not too late! Follow this link:
WE REACHED OUR GOAL! BIG THANK YOU TO ALL BACKERS AND THOSE WHO SHARED. LET'S SEE HOW FAR WE CAN GO WITH THE TIME LEFT!
The idea came to me when I wanted to get the same sounds out of my guitar as I could out of my Cajon. So I started experimenting and a few prototypes later, the Guitar Drum was born. The Guitar Drum will allow you to get more sounds out of your acoustic guitar. You will be the coolest one-man band around at every party guaranteed. You can make easy/overplayed/boring songs come to life again by adding your own back beat to the whole thing simultaneously. There is a bit of a learning curve, but I believe if you can fingerpick you shouldn’t have a huge problem with learning how to play this drum. The features that we’ve put into it is a bass sound and a snare sound (it has a snare mechanism). We've also made left handed versions of the drum.
Will it fit onto your guitar?
We've tried to make it so it fits most body types. I would suggest to measure your guitar and see if you have the space necessary. It is 9 1/8 inches long from the top to the fat bottom curve and about 4 1/2 inches wide at the widest part.
How's it held onto the guitar?
It is held onto the guitar with mounting tape. We've decided to do it that way so it can be removable and we also wanted to avoid cosmetic damage to the guitar.
We are currently using three types of wood for kickstarter; Poplar, Mango, and Koa.
How do you play this thing?!
There is no one correct way to play this drum. There is the way that was shown in the videos above (we will put up videos breaking this technique down before you get your drum). There is also another awesome method that my friend showed me just yesterday!
We have a shop here in Hawaii that can make all of our drums for us. We are able to provide much more than $1000 worth of drums, so we really hope to be an even bigger success than our goal. So we have a manufacturer standing by if the demand is higher than we expect.
Thanks for the features!
Risks and challenges
Risks and Challenges
Since we do live in Hawaii and we depend on a lot of shipments for our components. We do run the risk of poor weather conditions and storms that could delay our production. Our manufacturer could also run into the same problems with shipping and poor weather conditions. We do have an amazing team of mentors that are guiding us every step of the way. We are extremely confident that our product will get to you and you will be jamming in no time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
