I have recently gotten into making experiential instruments for harsh noise / industrial / ambient / etc. music, and none have been as popular as the COWHELL, so I am expanding the line.

This is a model my wife has affectionately named "THE CALF."

"THE CALF" has all of the great tone and functionality of the "COWHELL" original, but now with a COMFORT GRIP HANDLE and in a much smaller package! Handles additionally have a key ring on top for easy clipping, carrying or hanging.

It has a 1/4" input and a simple volume control. It works great as a clean amplified cowbell tone, but can get very interesting very fast when run through a pedal chain. Sounds great with distortion, delay, reverb, etc. The volume allows you to control the feedback.

Another use I have found for it is it works as a lo-fi microphone, you can sing of scream into the bottom of it and it gives your vocals an old school "megaphone / AM radio" tone to it.

Outside of that, the possibilities are up to your imagination. I am sure someone will find a use for it that I have not thought of, and I look forward to it. See the video for a short demo.

This one is in distressed / relic "Coke Machine" finish and is made from a super high quality Easter Brand cowbell. The whole thing is roughly 10" long, but the bell is only 4". Because this one has a smaller bell, the "ding" is really piercing and higher pitched than my other COWHELLs.  

Got questions? Shoot me a message, I love nerding out with other gearheads!
