I wasn't aware there were other helmet instruments out there until i saw the megaphone helmet on your site a couple months ago. Right now our helmet is 3 strings with one pickup and a volume knob. I mostly play it with an EBow for our noise music project. Thanks for looking." Thanks for making, Mike. Just don't come around my house at night dressed like that.
UPDATE: Mike writes: "You can hear sounds on our MySpace page. My friend Andrew and I built this thing over the past few months. It's made from a steel army helmet and a random frame probably from a bathroom fixture. We adhered it with MarineTex epoxy. It is incredibly heavy, and bulletproof. We have been practicing together since last Halloween. Andrew is the electronics wizard as far as wiring these instruments. He also does some circuit bending as well. We are located in Seattle and just played our first show together at the ReBar last Wednesday at Le Vide."
