If you look around the site, in the comments section at the side you'll eventually get this:

It seem a lot like a cajon. Still, pretty cool. Can only imagine what silly purpose they're putting it to.

Matt would tear it up. Besides this thing is just a box.. not very revolutionary.

It's. A box. A wooden. Box.

Is there something incredibly special about this instrument that someone could explain to me? Because I'm not seeing it.

When struck, the vibrations send out shock waves that rip a hole into the space time continuum releasing creatures and elements into our world that the band will use to their bidding in creating music that has never been created before.


If not, then I have no clue what it does.

Agreed. I could've made that.

:rolleyes:

The modern cajón has several screws at the top for adjusting percussive timbre and may sport rubber feet. Some versions may also have several vertically stretched cords pressed against the tapa for a buzz like effect or tone. Guitar strings, rattles or drum snares may serve this purpose. The percussionist can play the sides with the top of his palms and fingers for additional sounds.

The modern cajón is often used to accompany the acoustic guitar and is showing up on worldwide stages in contemporary music.

So it's probably for an acoustic song. It can also be connected to a drumkit as it would replace the bassdrum. Sounds interesting though.

Yeah, good luck with that.

A piano is just a bunch of keys on a wooden box, I could have made that.

Yeah, but there isn't anything with the dube that's particularly fantastic sound-wise. I mean, I guess the fact that it's light-wight (I'm assuming) and you can get it customized is pretty cool, but besides that, there really isn't much else.

Maybe I'm just biased because I'm such a big bongos fan.

Well, sorry for not understanding sarcasm that doesn't have a point.

And in what way does those two smileys show sarcasm? They could just as easily be used in a "non-sarcastic" way.

Well, had I not used the smileys, my post would've seemed serious, thus the use of the emoticons highlights the non-seriousness (sarcasm) of my post. Or something... :p

Ex-Manchester United man moves into music.
Former Manchester United and England footballer Dion Dublin's first musical instrument, The Dube, has been praised by the likes of Muse.

The percussion instrument, which you can watch being used by scrolling down now, has been endorsed by the likes of Tim Westwood, Feeder and Muse's sound technician Mark Carolan, who told Thedube.com he'd been using the device with the Devon band.

"I've been testing The Dube with Muse and Dion's done a fantastic job developing it – [it] truly is a complete instrument, so versatile," Carolan explained.

Dublin, who also played for Coventry City and Aston Villa, among others, retired from professional football in 2008.

The Dube is available in several different sizes. See Thedube.com for more information on the instrument.

Watch footage of Dublin using The Dube below.

Whats up with them finding really odd percussion instruments lately? This one seems more unnecessary than the other box they were looking into.

This one is definitely different. The other one you could actually do cool things with, and hook it up to a drum set. This just looks obnoxious.

This is one of the most ridiculous instruments I've ever seen. :facepalm: They're just slapping a box. :LOL:

Oh, I wasn't really paying attention. :p

Btw, what was it they used a hang drum for? Now THOSE things are awesome.

I still don't understand what separates the Dube from an ordinary box. His site isn't very informative.

06-10-2010, 05:00 AM
^Yeah, the website doesn't really make clear the advantage of getting a "dube" over a regular cajón. Right now, I just think the creator is capitalizing on the fact that most people don't know what a cajón is and he's trying to make his instrument seem revolutionary. Silly hype. It's just a cube-y cajon. I think the cube shape actually makes it uncomfortable to be played while sitting on top of it, which limits you from manipulating the instrument with your feet. How lame.

Either way, you can do a lot of cool stuff with cajón. It's not just a box.

I think Dom's interested in these because Matt won't be able to destroy them. Or maybe Dom wants something around in the way of ammo so he'll have something to retaliate with if Matt ever slings his double-neck at him. He could keep a whole slew of these, in a variety of sizes, stacked near his drumkit... like having an arsenal of snowballs ready in a snowball fight.


A hypothetical question: if you mistakenly refer to Dion Dublin as "Dion Dolby," will Christopher Guest's head explode?
