Former disabled musician invents special bass guitar

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2017-07-19 11:50

About the solution

The Quirkuitar is a bass guitar with an “effects pedal” built into its front, which eliminates the need for foot control, and has embedded an iPad into a digital guitar, replacing its strings. 

“Because of my experience, when I make an instrument I think, ‘Would everybody be able to play this?’ If more people approached their work this way, there would be more cool stuff in the world. Look at the Paralympics – the public found overcoming a physical disability inspiring. But artistic expression by the disabled is just not appreciated in the same way”, Adam said.

This invention led Adam to win an award at Music Tech Fest, a festival of music ideas.
