Chapman Stick
chapman_stick_2.jpg

The Chapman Stick was invented round 1974 by Emmett Chapman. It\'s a stringed instrument as a guitar but unlike the guitar the strings are tapped, not plugged. As the Stick has more strings the player can use all his fingers at the same time.

The Stick comes in different forms. There is the 10 string Stick, called....well Stick, the 12 string version is called Grand Stick. Then there is the Stick bass which is a 8 string bass version. The NS/Stick is a 8 string multi-mode instrument, where the Alto Stick is a smaller version with a guitar range. Last but not least there is also a stick with a wider spacing, called the Ten String Grand.

The sound of the stick is close to the sound of a guitar, but the possible chords are much more versatile.
