FabLab Band

Introduction: FabLab Band

At the FabLab we were commissioned to design a musical instrument. This instrument had to be made with all the machines at the FabLab . The maximum allowed size that we could make use of was 100x100x80. In order not to make it too difficult , we chose to make a simple band of different instruments. Our band consists of a guitar, drums and a samba box.

While making these instruments we had mainly made use of the lasercutter. To make the base of our band we used a computer controlled cutter.

The instruments consist of simple shapes. But by cutting grooves in the wood it becomes pliable and gives it a fascinating look. There are only small differences between the instruments and therefore they fit perfectly together.

Perfect for making music anywhere along with your friends!

    This looks pretty neat. I'd love to see a video of this being used! :)

    What are the strings made of?
