          Wonderful box of inspiration

          Finally bought a Krankie after owning a Space Oddity for a couple of years. This is an excellent device, constant inspiration. I would absolutely love to see a “deluxe” or custom version that had a volume knob (it’s quite loud) and in-built delay. Keep up the excellent work Richard

          ACE!

          Whole family love it. Richard’s kind notes in each delivery make the special instruments even more welcome in our home. Wonderful.

          A wonderful instrument that fosters experimentation

          I spent a few hours just playing with the Krankie when it arrived - so many new ways to experience Happy Birthday! I look forward to more experimentation by creating my own songs with it, then weirdly warping them.

          Love it!

          Within an hour of having this my daughter made a custom lullaby for her new baby cousin and I’ve managed to sneak it into a film score. I also love recording lo-fi elements through the onboard mic while using the pitch knob for warping. Such a well made, fun, easy to use instrument! I’m hooked! And the handwritten note in the shipment was something I’ve never seen before from any other company. Truly special. You guys are the best.
