On this page we will be publishing recorded music to demonstrate our instruments within a quality audio capture.
We start with an instrumental rendition of “Out of the Black” by the magnificent
Royal Blood, played on our 3-string license plate resonator in the key of F.
Music written by Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher
Performed and produced by Salvage Sounds

Below is our radio interview given at the
Paddle Round The Pier Beach Festival, featuring a short snippet of both our 2-string fretless canjo and 3-string pencil case strumstick.
For a fuller demonstration of the musical capabilities and range of our
3-string pencil case strumstick here is a rough-and-ready rendition of Van Morrison’s “ Brown Eyed Girl” recorded at the facilities of Northbrook MET.
But what would an “orchestra” of our
pencil case strumsticks sound like? Here is a “string quintet” arrangement of the song Disarm by The Smashing Pumpkins, featuring only our easy-to-play, 3 nylon string, 7 fret instrument design in a 5-piece ensemble.
This is how our 3-string
license plate resonator guitars can sound in a live band setting (and with a cleaner tone to the demonstration of the same instrument at the top of this page).
Jamming on a version of
Chicken Coop Blues by Mike Snowden, this session was recorded with the students and staff of Northbrook Metropolitan College at their excellent multi-million complex.
(Listen carefully and you will catch our popular
fretless slide canjo in the background)
