Yahama digital trumpet at Hammacher-Schlemmer 
Friday, November 24, 2006, 03:02 PM - Misc Music
Hammacher-Schlemmer, the way-overpriced-but-occasionally-cool gadget store has the Yamaha EZ-TP digital trumpet for sale at 500 bucks.
You sing into it (and use the keys if you want), and the trumpet turns the pitch of your voice into synthesized sound, or to the corresponding MIDI messages (from which you can control another synth). The trumpet has been available in Japan for a while, but this is the first time it is available in the US.
I'm guessing it will be available from other vendors for a much lower price after the holiday season, but since my WX-5 MIDI Wind Controler is broken, I can't wait.
