Me & Klampfinator sitting on stairs

When i tried to learn the guitar, I always had the problem of too many fingers for too few strings. So I planned to get rid of them (strings, not fingers!). The result is a perfectly playable instrument, that is technically an arpeggiator, that sounds like a guitar.

You can choose from up to 11 strumming or picking patterns per song with your right hand, and up to 11 chords per song with your left hand, each one with only a single finger.

It features:

  • an OLED Display that shows you the actual settings you chose for a song
  • knobs for speed, volume and "raking"
  • an SD-Card reader for your song library
  • an USB-Port for programming and power supply
  • a separate power jack
  • a compartement for a 9V battery (for usage in the woods by the fireside)

The two "strings" you see in the picture aren't strings, but only ribbons to hold the speaker in place, while keeping it easily removable.
