Pommery Cellar with Big Muff Pi Art

Posted 6/26/2009
With thanks to Michael-in-Paris we just discovered the Pommery Champagne house in Reims, France (photo via Wikipedia):
When there, be sure to get a tour of the cellar. That's where you'll discover their contemporary art collection, which features an installation work composed of a pair of Les Pauls, Big Muffs, Marshalls, and a lot of birds.

The gear is left plugged in, and the birds actually "play" the guitars when they land on the strings. Michael wasn't too keen about the bird guano on the instruments, but c'est l'art:

For more Big Muff Pi art, see Robin Rose's "Cypher" Exhibit, Washington, DC and also Big Fluff Pi vs. Music-Industrial Complex. For even more, see the Big Muff Pi page.

Our new EHX Strings Electro-Harmonix electric guitar strings are custom-designed to our specifications and made in the USA by a premiere string manufacturer. Each wound string is precision wrapped with round nickel-plated steel onto a high carbon, hexagon-shaped steel core. The plain strings are made from the same high carbon steel as the hex cores. The high quality steel and computer controlled winding process results in strings that intonate accurately, are better at staying in tune and vibrate evenly for maximum sustain.
