Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

LAST week’s item was a Flex-A-Tone, a per­cus­sive in­stru­ment used in ev­ery­thing from clas­sic car­toons to 1920s jazz bands.

On the box of this one from Ho­bart’s An­tiques to Retro it says the item “makes jazz jazz­ier” — which sounds like a fun twist on an of­ten se­ri­ous genre of mu­sic.

Stew Ed­wards was the first reader with the cor­rect an­swer. Dave Keller, Jimmy Hea­zle­wood and Scott Cash­ion were also spot on the money. Read­ers also guessed that it was a door jam, metronome or Vi­braslap; the lat­ter ac­tu­ally does look pretty sim­i­lar but is not the same thing.
