The Brush Box with Bendid Strings snare system is a handcrafted, high quality, custom brushing box. The Brush Box was designed in collaboration with percussionist Mike Wojik. Mike needed a product that could recreate brush sounds in a portable acoustic instrument.
The box is a hexagonal shape inscribed from a circle of 8.5” radius. It is made of solid Maple and the Tapa is exotic veneer on birch plywood. Each brush box incorporates our patented Bendid Strings snare system to provide a snare sound effect through our unique installation of guitar strings. The Tapa surface has a unique finish to accentuate the brushing strokes. The box is optionally available with a guitar strap with Schaller style connectors installed. The sound ports are ideally located and sized to provide optimal resonance. The brush box may be played in your lap with the optional strap around your waist keeping it ideally situated, or it may be played upright with the strap over one shoulder. The Tapa is secured with stainless steel screws. The outer finish is clear lacquer. The brush box measures approximately 18" x 16" x 2.5".
Brush Box tapas are available in many exotic wood veneers. Check availability in each of the Standard Edition, Limited Edition, and Rare Woods Edition collections. Each wood species provides distinctive sound characteristics.
