Pel-Tone Super Deluxe Washboard, Number WB80
An incredible sounding, fully functional work of folk-art, handcrafted in Michigan by Brian Pelton (aka Washboard Pops). This model is assembled from a vintage reclaimed washboard, which is outfitted with ordinary painted cans "tuned" to different tones, a bell, a hollow woodblock, 10" cymbal (thus the "super" designation) and jingles. Most of the add-ons are adjustable in one or more ways. It's numbered and signed, and 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. More Details...
