Description: Frendo is a custom made Soundiron instrument. We created this monster by stringing wire around steel plates and bolts, through galvanized steel pipes and wooden planks. He had to suffer. You can help by mistreating him with screwdrivers, bows, drumsticks, hammers, and fingers. The instrument contains a huge amount of otherworldly sounds, which is ideal for composers looking for new unsettling, horror-like textures for their scores. Frendo is a part-hammer instrument recorded with wooden and rubber mallets, but it is also a more traditional stringed instrument as we recorded finger snaps and bows. It is the sound of Satan’s cello quietly mourning your fiery soul.
This 5-string son of a bitch is made from gnarled pine, rusty steel wire, eyebolts, hooks, screws, hurricane brackets, and an old 24-inch bass drum that was 8 feet long and 3 feet wide. 6 spikes and two separate body segments to allow twisting and bending of the instrument while playing. It was tightened with black iron wire wrapped around galvanized steel angles and plates, and over the large diameter eyebolts we used as tuners, with a pipe wrench.
We have provided many customizable controls, presets, effects and instruments to give you complete sonic freedom and control over your sound. This library is a unique tuned percussion and string instrument in its own right, but also provides great effects and sound design for stingers, trailers, shows, post-production, and any number of other specialized production uses.
