Special Commission Balasynth

Special Commission for Balafon player Alastair Eilbeck from the UK (left in photo, Will Wernick on the right). We’ve called this the Balasynth…. This 15 note instrument is set up in a pentatonic scale C,D,E,G,A (but being MIDI you can always retune). All the usual Xylosynth features apply such as octave shift etc. The keys are slightly longer (165mm) but the same width as the Xylosynth keys (46mm). So far Alastair says he loves it and is looking forward to travelling with it on his motorbike!

New Premises

We’ve outgrown our beloved workshop on Twycross St and have moved our office and assembly area into new premises which are highly energy efficient and have 3.6kw solar panels on the roof making  it carbon neutral. Below is the first instrument to be made here, a 5 Octave Stained Birch Special with internal sounds off to Hong Kong later today!

This is the 2 Octave Stained Birch that was just sent out to April Base Studios in Wisconsin. For studio and touring work with Justin Vernon/Bon Iver/Volcano Choir.  I’m sure he’ll put it to good use! Lovely music.
