In the deep forest of Kumamoto Prefecture lives wild animal with horrifying singing – Kumamotone! New face of Otamatone from Maywa Denki studio leaded by Nobumichi Tosa comes to market.New version or theme is based on official mascot of Kumamoto Prefecture. The mascot itself is very popular in Japan and with global popularity of Otamatone it’s going to be perfect combination.
Hardware is practically same as regular Otamatone. It is powered by 3 x AAA cells (included in package). On backside of Kumamotone there are two main switches. Upper one controls power and volume in two stages. Second switch sets the octave (low-mid-high). Size of instrument is approx. 27 cm (14,6 inch) and weight around 0,2 kg (8,2 ounces). Instructions is as always in Japanese 🙂
There will not be proper release without Nobumichi Tosa and his performance on instrument.
