The Planck

The Planck is a 7 stringed instrument played horizontally by tapping fingers between the frets.

The sound of the Planck is transported to an amplifier via an electromagnetic pickup. As the frets are high the strings can be bend when tapped, creating sounds like a pedal steel guitar, koto or sitar.
