Reviews / The Pipe

Thomas Lundberg (techno/ambient artist, Amsterdam)

It sounds very good right away. It is surprisingly easy to make cool drones and chant-like textures that I modulate with the knobs.

I think the Pipe is incredible, not just the sound, but that it challenges you as a musician to learn new playing techniques. Very cool!

This mouth-controlled synthesizer is the wildest instrument I’ve ever heard


Extravagantes Design und Funktion!


Jamie Lidell

What a unique beast. I love that it doesn’t feedback. Genius. The Main issue with so many “fx” for voice is the feedback

It’s a wonderful idea and wonderfully realized!Feels good in the hand.

The Pipe sounds fantastic!

The instrument was very intuitive and I managed to pick it up and get some cool stuff happening pretty quickly indeed._


Casey Neiditch (producer/engineer)

I realize it is a very deep instrument, but I was able to use it very quickly.

I heard my voice in ways I never have before

I still feel like I am building my relationship with the Pipe. It is insanely subtle and the slightest positioning of the lips really creates a whole new sound altogether.
I’m in love.


Onno Ennoson (audio & visual artist/vienna)

It’s really a lot of fun to play with the PIPE 🙂
I like it, the possibility of ‘exhausting’ while playing comes to the table if you know what i mean.
There is an aspect of ‘ElectroShamanism’ in connection with the PIPE. In this way the instrument was able to open another door…
Thx for that!
