Italian design: Noah No-No

Noah No-No.
Italian design.
Aluminium with carbon neck
Volume and Tone are those big holes. They're connected to the potentiometers with a sort of v-belt.








Totally wacko. And therefore very cool  :mrgreen:

I give it a 10/10 for innovation and the car like belts
I give it a 7/10 for a little similarities with those aluminium Airstream caravans.

But then there's the toilet seat reference.

Sure I've seen that pulley wheel in a Meccano set...

New form of paddle...?

Looks like an alien face. An alien with a pointy head(stock).

Designed by Beldar Conehead himself?

At first look I would say I don’t like, then I look to my 20/20 clone....

For some reason, that bass made me think of this.

It's puristic and at the same time playful (Bella Italia!), I like it!

First impression was definitely toilet but once I saw the freaky machine engineering design I love it. I wonder if they provide the correct belt tension data as to not wear out the bearings prematurely.

I'm really surprised this isn't German-made. There is something about a compulsion to add technological complexity that would fit the design of the inner workings.

Even though it's taken, "Vorsprung durch Technik" fits this one.
