Blog Challenge "V"

I'm gonna show my band-nerdiness from my high school days.  Today's blog challenge letter is "V."

V is for: Vibraslap


We actually did have one of these when I was in high school band.  As I'm sure you can imagine, it was highly ranked on the easy-instruments-to-make-fun-of list.  It's usually played by the same person who plays the triangle. . . I think.  Anyway, if you need proof, this is what it looks like:


Now, try explaining it to someone, lol.  "See, you hold it in this hand, and slap the ball in the other . . . "

Yeah! Another high school band nerd! Our band also had a vibraslap. Good, hilarious times.

The last time I saw this was practically in middle school. Do they even exist anymore? The most awkward instrument ever!

...so that's what that instrument's called! I remember we used to have one in the music room at the school where I used to work!

I have never heard of one of these things. If you hadn't posted a picture there is no way I would have been able to visualize this!
