Gather ’round, string enthusiasts and rhythm aficionados, for the tale of a musical Frankenstein’s monster that’s part twang, part clang, and a whole lot of “why?”
Introducing the guitar that decided it was time to crash the drummers’ party: the Zildjian Cymbal Guitar.
A ‘Symbol’ of Innovation or Desperation?
You’ve heard of axe shredders turning up to 11, but have you ever seen one turn up the treble… on a cymbal? This creation is what happens when a guitarist crashes into a drummer’s kit and thinks, “That’ll do for a body.”
The result? A cymbal with six strings that must be as confusing to the ears as it is to the eyes.
High Notes or Hi-Hats?
Is it a solo or a solo? With this cymbal guitar, you might strike a chord or just strike… we can’t really tell.
It must be the perfect instrument for those moments when you can’t decide between a guitar solo and a drum fill. Why not botch both at the same time?
For Those About to Knock…
This is not just an instrument; it’s a conversation starter. And by conversation, we mean a lengthy debate on whether you’ve lost your marbles.
Plus, it’s great for those knock-knock jokes.
- Who’s there?
- An out-of-tune guitar.
- An out-of-tune guitar who?
- No seriously, tune this thing, it sounds like a cymbal.
** What were you expecting, it’s a fucking knock-knock joke! **
Drummers Beware: Your Kit is Next
To all drummers out there, guard your kits. The guitarists have got a taste, and they’re coming for your toms next. Who knows? The Snarocaster might just be the next big hit. Or just a big hit… of the snare.
In the end, this cymbal of a guitar might just symbolize the cacophony that we all need. Who needs harmony anyway?
