A project log for Marabunta

Open source parametric stringed instruments

I tend to name my instruments after insects and spiders; When I started this project, I called it the hornet. It turns out that there is a hornet bass already on the market, even though there is no hornet guitar. As this system is designed to be capable of creating guitars, basses, mandolins, etc... It seemed worth it to change the name, and avoid the confusion of being the second electric bass called the hornet. Marabunta is a South American colloquialism for hornets that hunt spiders, and is an uncommon enough term that I was able to score the domain for marabunta.net.
