Pringle tubes have fantastic resonance! pick up an empty one and play it like a bongo, it doesn’t sound too shabby does it? taking this one step further i decided to make a few little alterations, and hey-presto! i give you the 2 string Pringle harp and the Pringle tube Ektara!
The harp is pretty limited, but the Ektara sounds pretty fantastic. I know of 3 different ways of playing a proper Ektara and you can only manage one of them on the Pringle Tube version, but even so it’s not a bad mimic of the sound/style.
