The washboard tie is not only suitable for a quick percussion insert between the actual playing of the instrument, but is also quite something to look at. With this accessory you already draw attention to yourself, even before you have played a single note!
Our washboard ties are made of stainless steel and are therefore very sturdy. Due to its narrow shape, the sound is comparatively bright, almost shrill. But that certainly fits the look.
A stainless steel hook on the back of the tie is simply hung at the neckline of your shirt, which works amazingly well. However, you should not show off by standing on your head with it.
The washboard tie is about 37cm long (14.5 in. and has about 26 ridges), at the widest point 9.5cm wide (3 3/4 in) and weighs about 100g (3 1/2 oz). At the collar, two corners over a width of 11 cm (4 1/3 in) suggest a neckline.
Traditionally, washboards are scraped with thimbles. These can be purchased separately from us.
