Unkulele has inspired me
So here’s the deal.
After much tinkering and fiddling around, we're almost ready to go into mass production with the, drum roll please …Aunt-ordian.
What’s the difference between an Aunt-ordian and a regular accordian, you say?
Well, the sound for one thing. Water damage and mold produce a truly unique squawk, er sound. The Aunt-ordian has been aged in a temperature uncontrolled, damp garage for like, 30 years. Sort of like a fine wine, you can’t rush the process.
And if you tape down the F# it creates an outer spacey mood.
Oh, and here’s where the biggest difference comes. Through a lot of trial and error I figured out how to tone down that sometimes big and annoying accordian sound. Yup.
By putting a pillow muffler on the back of the instrument it significantly reduces the volume. Which is useful when you want to go for a more mellow and romantic mood. Like if you want to be one of those strolling guys who play in restaurants for people in love and such. Or if you need to play in church.
But here is the biggest selling point, people. When you get tired of wandering around playing for lovers and church goers and need to take a nap, well you can just turn your dang Aunt-ordian over and Presto! Your instrument turns into an amazing pillow pet.
Yup, yup. I know. Genius.
Selling for $899.03 plus tax.
