This thing is a lot of fun but I don't get to use it a lot.
Just plug it into your amp, use any pedal effect of your choice and slappaway!
At their website it cost $249+SH.
Will let it go for $125 shipped CONUS or $100 with local pickup.
It's in brand new condition.
Here's a video demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpgVHC_9jls

Cool! Thanks for posting that.
Now I know what to do with all that steel banding!

A friend of mine was just raving about these things last week. Very cool. :) Paulo, how many octaves is it?

This company makes some pretty innovative/wack-o-doodle stuff. Check these out:

[quote="pjmuck"] Paulo, how many octaves is it?
12 I think? The space between the drilled dots is exactly the same as the space without dots.
You can also tune it: The SLAPEROO is shipped pre-tuned to the key of E, but can also
be tuned from C to G by using a tuning wrench on the tuning nut
on top of the instrument. Use a capo or electric octave pedal to
play in A through C.

I think you mean notes, not octaves. A piano has 7 octaves. Anything above that and only dogs would hear it. :lol:
