so i tried some searching to see if this has come up, but no luck.
bit of a long post, so if you're a.d.d. like me, skip to the MAIN QUESTION.
i just got back from summer camp music fest, and had an awesome time. tons of great music, and lots of amazing bass action. i got to see primus, the tedeschi trucks band, pretty lights, gogol bordello, ozomatli, and a bunch of new favorites. gogol bordello even came out for part of primus' set!
as for new favorites, if you haven't heard of jc brooks & the uptown sound, sister sparrow & the dirty birds, gramatik, or brother joscephus & the love revival revolution orchestra, definitely check them out.
oh, and then there was the dirty dozen brass band. the band was pretty good, but the rhythm section was phenomenal, especially kirk joseph, the sousaphone player. he was using some sort of filter on the sousaphone, which was sick.
which brings me to the MAIN QUESTION:
he was playing some sort of electric jug for one song. it was basically just the mouth piece. ie no jug. almost like a rounded oversized shot glass made out of rubber with a guitar cable coming out of it. it sounded amazing - very tuba-like. anyone know what this is? i've searched high and low and can't find anything, but boy do i want one.
