Waterphone-----It is the instrument that creates creepy sound, the sound which often occurs in horror movie and music.
The Waterphone is a unique, hand-crafted, water-filled musical instrument that creates hauntingly ethereal sounds reminiscent of humpback whale calls or the eerie, sci-fi sounds produced by a theremin. Because the Waterphone is atonal, it is easy and fun to play! No instruction is required.
To play the Waterphone, the resonator chamber is first filled with a small amount of water. The sound is produced by bowing the stainless wire times (spokes) using a violin bow or percussively by lightly striking the resonator chamber or tines with a mallet, drumstick or by hand.
The extended length of the column and the light-weight materials used in its construction makes it easy to hold while playing. Ruggedly constructed from 18/10 stainless steel the Waterphone is extremely durable.
Because this is a unique, handcrafted instrument, it not only sounds great, but also looks great as a work of metal-sculpture art. The detailed photo shows irregularities that only add to the beauty of the Waterphone.
