My Ztar has all the cables, a gig bag, the manual and a wireless system missing one component.

Here's that puppy;

Forgot to say I'd also take an N/S in trade.

Greetings,

I've nothing up for trade but would really appreciate your thoughts on this instrument, why you chose it originally, your likes/dislikes, why you're opting for something else, etc... If my memory still serves me you haven't owned & played it for too long have you ?

Thank & welcome to Tappistry,

Glenn

I chose this instrument because I couldn't figure out a way to make a Chapman Stick play bass, non third chords, and melody at the same time. I got the idea to have two sticks laying flat where I play bass with my left hand thumb and chords with my left hand fingers. Right hand free to solo on another stick. The fingerings were possible but really hard. Even three not quartals disadvantaged the bass from being able to play a simple ostinato. When i saw the Z-tar I thought my problems were solved. My wireless system arrived with one component burned out so it's too many cables now and not free to send it there and pay the import duty for the component to come back to Indonesia. Fun otherwise.

On the Z-tar, the entire chord progression can be sequenced by repeatedly pressing the same button without moving your hand. It just keeps playing the next chord in the song. Easy as pie.

I've owned it for a very short time. I'm currently designing a tapping instrument with bass strings on the back.
