The Nineboys 3 String Wedge is a three string version of Nineboy's popular 1 String Wedge Diddley Bow.
Traditionally, Instruments like this were made from discarded materials, and spare items found in bins, farms, and junkyards. They were considered a starter or children's instrument in the Deep South of America, especially in the African American community and were rarely heard outside the rural South.
Nineboys have designed the Wedge so that it's a highly approachable and comfortable instrument to play. Two machine heads provide the ability to change tuning easily, and they've put a handy fret-board on the body to help. Designing it for the 21st century they've also added volume control.
The beauty of the 3 String Wedge is that it's built with consistency, to a high standard, yet maintaining the charms of the original DIY diddley-bows.
The Wedge is a great gift for the guitarist who has everything, or the one that wants to try something bold and new. Although originally a blues instrument, mixing a double octave range slide instrument with a pedal or two completely opens up the sounds possible.
