American Keyworks let us know about their unique new keyboard, the Thorium AK-24 Bowman, that combines a traditional piano keyboard with a real bowable, bendable string.
“We love keyboards!” they note. But they add, “We have always wished they sounded more ‘real’ than some of the microchip based stuff we had access to. So we built this new type of keyboard instrument that responds to bowing, drumming, slapping, and even feeds back if you crank it up.”
Here’s a video introduction to the Thorium AK-24 Bowman.
Here’s an example of the Thorium AK-24 Bowman being used for some rock style shredding:
A bass version is also available:
