The Tritare is a Y-shaped guitar-like instrument, custom made by Claude Gauthier and Samuel Gaudet. The strings twist through three necks (Spinal Tap, eat your heart out), all of which project from the body of the instrument at different angles. When strummed, the result is a "network" of vibrations that yields a sound somewhere between that of a regular guitar and a gong. For we who are about to rock.... All hail the Tritare!

The housing was never built when the man in charge was made to testify before HUAC for his socialist notions of public housing. more inside
