T.D. Skatchit

Inventor of the Skatchbox
T.D. Skatchit & Company

First there was the Electric Light then The Talking Machine. Now witness The Skatchbox; a new musical invention by Thomas Skatchit.

Built out of cardboard boxes and played with combs, this recession era wonder conjures up sounds previously unknown to man. The mere sweep of the comb across the box creates a new universe of sound reminiscent of wind, the seashore, trees rustling, birds singing, frogs croaking and other magical sounds.

While on a visit to his workshop cousin David picked up the combs and began to play. Thomas sat in amazement at this first performance on his new invention. And so T.D. Skatchit was formed to spread the Skatch throughout the land performing with other traveling minstrels at carnivals and sideshows or wherever people would listen.

"I want to see a Skatchbox in every American home."
- Thomas Skatchit
