Musical Glasses - Set of 2

PRODUCT STORY
Wine and dine in perfect time! Get your next dinner party humming when you turn your sips into a symphony with these glasses-turned-musical-instruments. The etchings on the glasses are musical notations that correspond to the level of the liquid--when the user drinks to D for example, he or she may run a finger along the rim of the glass to create its lush, sonorous note. Or, for the more percussive partier, the same note will ring out with a gentle rap of his or her utensil on the side of the glass. From rounds of "Row, row, row your boat" to more ambitious orchestrations, you're sure to strike a chord with the guests at your next soiree with this set of glasses that covers a full 12-note octave from A flat to G. Made in Austria & Portugal.

Dishwasher safe.

A delightful glass of Chardonnay? That's music to our ears! Do you know a wine enthusiast who would love to make melodies with this stunning stemware?

I actually like the idea. I give a thumbs down for the set number. I think two for 45 dollars is not a good price. Also, in order to really make any significant music you will need upwards of 6 glasses at least. Maybe a larger set with a reasonable price.

This is an awesome idea, but for $45 there should be 4 glasses. Besides, nobody can play a song with just 2 glasses!

The high price is the turn off and they are not even crystal! I'm wondering why it took two countries to make them? Austria made the glases and Portual engraved them? Maybe that's why the price is too high?

Witty and classy... but too spendy for only 2 glasses. Need a cheaper price or more glasses before it hits my shopping cart.

I agree with Margaret that a larger set for a more reasonable price would be great. It is a very novel idea and will probably sell.

only 2 glasses for $45 is super pricey. Especially given the concept. Sure if you want to play 2 notes alone (or 2, the another 2 after you drink some of it) that would be great. But if you ever want to actually play anything (even something as simple as "row, row, row your boat" you're going to need 4 more glasses.

I agree with many others that for this price it should be a set of 4. It is just weird to sell in pairs anyway...

The price seems unrealistic for the state of the economy. How many people are going to spend $45 on 2 wine glasses that aren't beautiful or a unique shape?
