I thought it might be a good idea to explain this wonderfully versatile instrument that I play and am using for my compositions, particularly the current multimedia project with my sister & her husband that is nearing completion.
The NS Stick is a result of a collaboration between Emmet Chapman, the inventor of the Chapman Stick
and Ned Steinberger, a pioneer in instruments made from composites and being mainly headless.
Here is the original article by Emmet Chapman describing the instrument.
