Assembled from a vintage reclaimed washboard and outfitted with ordinary painted cans "tuned" to different tones, a bell, and a hollow woodblock. The add-ons are adjustable in one or more ways. Some decorative embellishments have been added. You provide thimbles (recommended), metal fingerpicks, or other implements (like metal brushes). Each washboard is unique and very cool.
