Products and Projects

We are interested in off-the-beaten track musical innovations, whenever, however and wherever we find them. Often we can add some value with a little or a lot of research and development, and we report our progress here. When everything clicks and a product is ready, you will find out first on this site.

Hit Maker is a simplified version in game form. As you learn the rules and strategies of the game, you are learning rules and strategies of songwriting.

Every Chord Ever is the solitaire version of Hit Maker, and musical wisdom in wood. Chords, harmony, progressions, alternate tunings and understanding is all built-in.

The Root Bass is a simple instrument found around the world. We found one in Jamaica, but replaced the resonator and/or microphone with a pickup that plugs directly into a bass amp. It’s an ancient electric instrument and a hand-carved unique work of art.

Flat Panel Speakers are showing up on the net because of surprising performance at an extremely low price. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of scientific research into why they work so well, so we are looking into it with some trials, software and careful measurement.

We develop our own electronics and apps when it makes sense for a project. An app to show support for Ukrainians in a tough situation has evolved into the Easy Meeting Virtual Webcam extension for Chrome.

I wanted to include an Every Child Matters flag in the virtual webcam, but couldn’t find one that wasn’t trademarked or copyrighted or had uncertain status, so I am offering a public domain design Truth and Reconciliation Flag I invite you to use in peace and hope.
