Each week Tom Whitwell of Music Thing highlights the best of the new music gear that's coming out, as well as noteworthy vintage equipment:
It's been a strangely acoustic week on Music Thing. First we saw Peter Jackson's music box, a $100,000 cabinet full of acoustic instruments played by machines. Then there was some discussion of What's Meg White Playing?. The White Stripes drummer has been playing a weird, colourful thing on stage in South America. It looked like an experimental MIDI interface, but turned out to be Chromatic Desk Bells made for kids.
