I bought this as a gift for my brother-in-law, a talented musician who is impossible to buy gifts for; even his wife says so. He loved it. He took it out of the packaging right away and way paying tunes on it in half a minute. It was perfect!

I got this for my husband (a professional musician) for our anniversary, but they had so many problems with the shipping that it took over 3 weeks to get here! The company was great though and after I was in touch with them several times, they shipped me a new one overnight :)... While the ruler is a really funny idea and it does sound bizarre, I thought it would make better sounds than it does and I thought my husband could use it in some of his recordings as a weird back-up sound... I play the saw (among many other more recognizable instruments) and it adds something strange to our music, which is what I thought the ruler would do... But it just kind of flatly "buzzes" and sounds like flapping plastic. But the book and the ruler are really professional and unique looking and it is the kind of gift you'd never expect to get and probably wouldn't find anywhere else... Good for the person who has everything and likes niche things :)

              This was for my 15-year-old daughter who plays the piano beautifully and loves music. She, and everyone else who saw it, had a blast trying to get the sound right. It's not perfect but a lot of fun trying and is so unique that it's a hit with everyone.

                  My 14-yr-old nephew seemed to like it, although I couldn't really tell the difference between "notes". Would like to have had more song options/examples. Nice to have hardcover instruction book with sleeve to store the ruler!
