Is it a piano?
No, it’s the Kelstone, a revolutionary musical instrument.
Tap, pull, strum or
scratch the strings
for an amazing experience!
If guitar and piano would be ski’s (some 30 years ago) the Kelstone would be a snowboard. In the same way that a snowboard is closer to a skateboard than to a ski, the Kelstone is closer to a saxophone than to a guitar or piano.
It’s an instrument with one string, 9 times, which is not the same as 9 strings!
John Frizell, Hollywood composer:
‘The Kelstone is a truly innovative and beautifully designed instrument. While it’s tone has similarities to guitars, the technique used to playing it results in new musical ideas that weren’t possible before’.
Nathan Barr, film composer:
‘The Kelstone is a unique re-envisioning of a guitar fretboard which allows me to see the guitar through fresh eyes and inspires me to think about harmony and melody in a new way when writing with the instrument.
Steven Willaert, film composer:
‘As a filmcomposer and a non-guitarplayer, the Kelstone is a God’s gift for me.
From day one it allowed me to have direct access to the sound of a real string.
It’s vibration, envelope, physics, it’s bendings and slidings.
I use it for simple things (chords, scales, melodies) but that is most of the time what a good arrangement needs.
