Thank you for all the incouragement one my Z-Stik When I posted it a few weeks ago.

Many of you said you wanted to hear the Z-Stik so hear is a teaser Vid just out of the studio.

The 3 point is being played by Nick Gerrett Powell.

We have the 3 point and the 5 point. The one pictured is the 5 point and the one that Nick is playing is the 3 point.

Let me know what you think!

I can not give out the plans! hope you understand.

In my misspent youth I was a Djembe/Ashiko player. Shaker/rainstick ‘players’ were always eyerollers. So I have to confess I was stuck at “well it sure is a beautiful take on…one of those things.”

Until he plugged it in.

Now I’m pretty sure I might need one.

Nice work!

It would be neat to have a jam session with 6 of these going at the same time, then fade to 5, 4, 3, 2 players and then a solo.
