The Latin Percussion LP1-8 Large Flexatone (Whammy) is a unique instrument that creates a wave of eerie, musical saw blade-like sounds though varied pitches. Bend the spring steel with thumb pressure and shake. As the wooden balls strike the surface, the effect will be produced. Available in standard and large sizes. The large size Flexatone will produce lower tones compared to the standard size.
Ernie B:Ernie here. Sure don't understand why they are so pricey, not much too them. Super fun but v. demanding to play well; talented kids ONLY who can hear a half-step and are willing to work to develop the necessary motor-control. PROBLEM is the puny/nothing/non-ergonomic hand grip. For $35/$50 it really should be manufactured as a serious instrument. If you sell it as-is, then please price it as a toy/gimmick sound maker. Can't afford 30 of these for a class challenge to find chord structure in a tuneable percussion instrument.Oct 4, 2016
