Downstairs in Hall E is an interesting place at Namm... it's where you find the smaller stands, and companies with more 'experimental' products on display.

And one such product was the Wheelharp, from LA-based company Antiquity Music. Looking like a cross between a piece of antique furniture, a steampunk prop from the Van Helsing movie, and a hurry-gurdy, it is most definitely in pole position for the strangest and possibly most wondrous instrument of the show so far...

We grabbed a quick run-through with creator Mitchell Manger - enjoy!

Looks and sounds more like an April Fools Day joke...

Though I can't quite see a use beyond atmospheric soundtracks, it certainly is an interesting instrument....

Interesting instrument... Sounded like it hadn't been tuned properly though. Looks like something a Bond Villain would play.

At the very minimum it's a handmade (in the US!) work of art that clearly will be produced in limited numbers and will likely become valuable as a collector's peice one day.
