The Giant Myriophone (Myriphon) was created by stage performers, Mr. and Mrs. Karsy. The instrument produces music similar to that of a full string band but requires only two persons to operate it. The Myriophone consists of twenty-five discs, each with eighty strings. Once the discs are set in motion the performers, who have a small stick of wood in each hand touch the strings, making a note which can be prolonged to any length.
If Mr. Nag and I could get our hands on one of these we could embark on an exciting and lucrative musical career.
