Cigarbox Instruments

During the depression era of the 1930's handmade instruments gained popularity, especially in the rural southern States of America. These instruments were often made from Cigar Boxes. Here at the 'Flea' we adore building low-tech musical instruments and have a collection available in the shop. Our work has been featured in various print and online media, notably 'Bust' Magazine, and'BoingBoing'. Our mission is to build authentic instruments using only materials which have been found, begged or borrowed. We will be continually adding to this collection but in the meantime, here is an impression of some of the instruments now available.

And yes, they sound pretty amazing too...
