Large Gourd Speaker with Amplifier


Bet you don't have one of these.

It's a speaker made from a real gourd -- you know, that vegtable-type thing. Bird-Electron Japan boasts that it utilizes the "natural resonance of the gourd" and makes a stylish addition to your house.

Now, it is true that the gourd has been used for centuries as a musical instrument, so maybe they're on to something.

Because they're making them from actual gourds, each speaker is different, so the one you order will not look the same as the one in the photograph you see above. The 2-sided gourd speaker comes with Bird-Electron's special designed mini amplifier for better sound playback.

The Bird-Electron EZ-HY2ST Large Gourd Speaker with Amplifier is available in "natural brown" (What? You expected blue?) and sells for $199 at Audiocubes.
