violinstrings and sweets
March 4, 2008 at 11:02 PM
You probably know the sweetaparatus where you can gets sweets for money. Tonight I had an orchestral rehearsal in a musicbuilding with musicschool and I saw a stringsaparatus (Dominant and Antoni) for a loose E,A,D,Ging, but also a set of violinstrings, left next to the sweetaparatus, which I also photograhped. They also had (Martin)guitarstrings, drumsticks and clarinetreed and hoboreed. Have you ever seen such a thing before? I was flabergasted.
Oh my gosh, that's funny!
Hahaha, I have never in all my life seen anything like that! What an interesting idea. Wow. :)
I wish I had one of those in my teacher lounge!

Read my "thrill of a new reed" blog.
A new reed is a treat! A vending machine with music "stuff!" Why didn't we think of that sooner?
Yes! That is SO awesome!
That is SO cool! Conservatories, orchestras, etc. should really get some of these!
I need to get one of these vending machines for my studio. I could load it up with all sorts of things: Strings, rosin, cleaning cloths, chin rests, shoulder rests, cases, bows, etc. Fabulous!
I am afraid that I would not be very responsible with the vending machine that was loaded up with chocolate though...
Bram, you really find the funniest things! Thanks!
Take a look at this installation art.
Anger release machine
and the really scary thing is that if a violinist want to know who is using what strings and so on we no longer consult v.commie. We ask the scruffy dude doing his round sof machine filling and then translate his reply of `The brown ones keep running out,` in to `Dominants seem to work well on modern instruments.` Poor Christian may be out of a job!
