The party they'll never forget

All the usual suspects were there. The conversation felt...flat. A guest glanced at her watch. Then we brought out the Musical Wine GlassesTM. All hell broke loose.

Our Musical Wine Glasses have saved many a flagging party. They turn the sophisticated pleasures of wine drinking into an experience that's musical, memorable, and above all, fun. Just fill our goblet to the desired note, and run your moistened finger around the rim of the glass. Soon, like a bow on the strings of a violin, your finger will cause the glass to vibrate, and a crystal-clear note will sound. Your guests may applaud children may shriek with glee. Soon everyone will be trying it, and if you have enough glasses, you may be in for a real concerto. Our Musical Wine Glass is a great gift for any musicians you know, or your child's music teacher. Each glass accommodates a full A-major scale, with each note labeled with sandblasted fill lines. Glassware made in Germany, decorated in Reno, Nevada. Patented 2014.

My boyfriend and I have kept our two glasses on the kitchen counter since opening them Christmas morning. I made the purchase based on the catalog description/photo. We love them. They are played (or played with) every day. We have delighted not only in their clear tones but in the patterns in the liquid one can achieve with different notes and differing speed/force of rubbing. They are a daily delight for this house of science and music geeks. Very high quality crystal stemware, etching is clear, well-done and easy to read! Only criticism is the stem--- it feels frighteningly thin and delicate, and it makes the goblets too tall for my dishwasher.

I loved the idea of this, and so when they arrived in the mail, I couldn't wsit to test them, that night! I was very disappointed to find, that the pitches aren't accurate!! One of the glasses was spot on, but the other glass, despite being at equal levels with the first glass, was a half step higher! I'm so disappointed with this, because I was so excited to receive them.

      I got these specifically for use in my music.
      I had previously bought a similar item from Hammacher Schlemmer that, while they sounded nice, were grossly out of tune (same for the 2 replacements, too).
      These, on the other hand are accurate to around 20hz and are a bit larger so they allow for a slightly broader range of sound. They also come in nice packaging which can be used for storing them.
      All in all I think they're very nice and I hope to get some good use out of them.

      2nd Time I Bought These and They've Broken Once Again

      By 

      from New York, NY

      Comments about UncommonGoods Major Scale Musical Wine Glasses - Set of 2:

      So I bought these for my partner originally a few years ago before we were living together. Within 6 months both of them had broken, but I had assumed she had been too rough with them while washing or something.

      Fast forward to present day and I bought a second set for her birthday. Not 2 months have gone by and already they've broken whilst I was gently hand washing them on separate occasions. In an ideal world these are perfect gifts but in reality they're way too fragile and I'm angry that I wasted my money on them.

      Saw these and immediately ordered them. Holds a significant amount of wine. Gotta fill it up to get the entire scale. Results in fewer refills, less work, get drunk more efficiently. Only downside is they are very fragile. Broke one the first time cleaning it. Do not wash these when you're drunk.

          I am planning on using these in a performance. I wanted a specific tuning and the tuning was slightly off which makes it more difficult to use. Would be great for random parties if you arent trying to use it with other instruments.... but it's not much better than the 50 cent ones I got at the thrift store except that it is a deeper tone.

          delivery was awesome and prompt.
