And speaking of cheap entertainment.... does anyone know if Panzade is still playing music?

Panzade has abandoned music to become the beloved mascot of a professional hockey team. The younger fans really like him.

Didn't say it wouldn't work. I once saw a guy playing on some kind of string "instrument". It had like a 2 X 4 hinged to wash tub, with strings from the top end of the board connected to the tub. The crowd loved it. I was awestruck.

It was plucked, not stroked.

trade name Bush bass. ask paul hogan to play it for you.
commonly constructed using a plywood tea chest a broom handle and string of various thickness depending on what can be found lying around.
often accomanied bu a largerphone.

That's the very idea. As I say, the one I saw was based on an inverted, glavanized wash tub, but definately the same instrument. Tea chest probably sounds better. The wash tub was big on enthusiasm, if nothing else.

The washtub bass was prevalent in the 1920's jug band music.

Ol' Doubtin' Gus still ain't gonna believe.

Thanks for the confirmation. What I tried to describe did sound kind of improbable.

Hi, You should here the Mouthbow played by Colin Offord, here's his description: Made with Australian rosewood, structural aluminium, carbon fibre & feathers. Two small drums on the bridge channel the string sounds into a mouth piece. It can be drummed, plucked, bowed & can be used by tongued harmonics and throat resonances.
