We are very pleased to be able to offer a reprint of the 1974 booklet, New/Rediscovered Instruments Volume 1, available exclusively through Sound American. This 28 page broadside was originally published by Quartz/Mirliton in London and features photos, descriptions and diagrams of homemade instruments made by Hugh Davies, Paul Burwell, Max Eastley, Evan Parker, Paul Lytton, and David Toop. Almost impossible to find now, the participants gave Sound American permission to do a very small reprint of the original, limited to 200 copies.

To celebrate the release of the reprinting, we are offering some one time only bundles combining DRAM subscriptions, New/Rediscovered Musical Instruments, our LP Widow's Joy, and some of our favorite past subscriber gifts. See below for some of the great deals, and help us "keep the lights on", as they say on the internet.
