Small Town Treasure...

Somewhere in the tiny town of La Salle, Colorado...

La Salle, Colorado

there is an itty bitty little thrift store that holds a lot of funny little treasures.

This week's treasure was this funny little Omnichord. It was shoved in a case in the corner of the room. I dug it out, brushed it off and decided it would be a nice addition to my collection of strings.

An Omnichord is a ridiculous little instrument that is sort of like an electric synth/harp that is played by pushing the chord buttons and then running your fingers along the touchpad on the right.

Here's a sample if you want to hear what they sound like -It's Au Revior Simone playing Dark Halls. Listen for the Omnichord!
