An electrified shaker to produce a hell of a noise or to create atmospheric sound layers. Rapaballs are braded from birch bark and contains mystical hard knocking elements. There’s an attached microphone inside, that takes the hits. The natural sound is different from the line out signal. While acoustic sound is very soft and delicate, line out is harsh and full on attack.
Hit it, tap it, roll it, shake it… There are endless possibilities to variate the way you use it. It has the soft low end, almost like cajon and treble like the sandstorm of a rainmaker. Plug it in to a stompbox distortion and the sound wall of death is ready! Or give it a go with warm delay and feedback for more subtle sounds.
Iicludes a linen woven handle and 1,5 meter long blue cable with 6 mm jack.
HANDMADE IN FINLAND. THE SERIES IS LIMITED TO 50.
THE INSTRUMENT CAN BE USED FOR ASTRONIMICAL OBSERVATIONS.
