Snakes enjoy a bit of music, which is why they can be
charmed out of a comfortable basket by a session of
or horn playing. For the discerning pianist, who also just
happens to own a snake, there has been no means of
effectively serenading and entertaining their elongated
also playing their instrument until now,
the introduction of a new feature called Snakes On A
Snakes On A Piano is a simple addition that takes the
of a long polished tube, running around the perimeter of
the piano, supported on a series of prongs just above the
sound board area. (grand piano of course)
The snake, preferably a boa, enters the tube and will
naturally leave its head protruding from one end just
where the keys are located.
Any form of ambient music will encourage rest and sleep
from mr snake, but troublesome noisy playing could lead
to a lot of trouble. In the case of some varieties, a
bite on the offending hands is the least that can be
expected. Play softly; with the right cadence, and
snake harmony is achieved. This encourages good
musicianship along with snake appreciation.
Deluxe version features extra twin cobra coils. (rotating)
