A little porch music?

This could be just the thing to spice up your evening porch sitting this summer, although you will have to find another place to sit while you play. The seat slats of this porch swing are tuned and playable like a marimba. Certainly a conversation starter on a warm summer evening.

Play tunes on your musical porch swing

We're not just talking about mere kickin' back on the deck with your favorite DAP -- we mean a porch swing that is itself an instrument. The Musical Porch Swing is made out of Western Red Cedar and the slats are tuned to chromatic pitches in order to be played as percussion. The $1000 kit includes the mallets and a songbook, so at least you can strive for sonic decency as the neighbors quizzically watch you pound on your furniture.
