The Root (Rootuke) is designed as experimental instrument with many possibilities. Separate jacks and a resonator with springs add so many levels of ideas. From binaural stereo washes to lush thick sounds.
That's it plugged in, but it is also an acoustic instrument with a good full acoustic sound.
It can be picked or used with a bow.
(Bow NOT included)
