What Are TableHooters?


If your first thought was of a place where girls in skanky outfits serve you terrible chicken wings, you're probably not alone. In fact, this appears to be a German phrase used to describe consumer and toy-grade musical instruments and noisemakers. This website breaks down dozens and dozens of them into categories and contains profiles, pictures, reviews and lots of interesting information. This would be an excellent reference for circuit-bending enthusiasts or even just people interested in weird, forgotten instruments. Lots of good reading!

Aha, the author refers to the German phrase "Tischhupe"... never heard that though being German myself ;-)

I thought maybe it was something he made up, but I searched for the phrase and found it other places, so it's apparently a real phrase...
