ElectroSpit seeks to make musical expression easier for artists of all skill levels.

The company’s first product is the ESX-1 talkbox, a type of instrument that enables musical artists to shape the sound of their voice as they perform.

This instrument was popularized in the 1970s by Grammy Award-winning singer Peter Frampton, and has been used by notable artists including Queen, Elton John, and the Eagles.

In a survey conducted by JaJak, of those who haven't learned an instrument, 46% said they were too busy to learn, 29% didn’t think they were musically talented enough, and 28% couldn’t afford to buy or rent an instrument.

Electrospit offers a solution to these challenges. Its ESX-1 enables users to play the talkbox easily, without the cumbersome tubes and equipment necessary for traditional talkboxes.

Electrospit was co-founded by Bosco Kante, a Grammy Award-winning producer. Its ESX-1 talkbox has been or will be used in songs by top artists including Bruno Mars, David Guetta, and Dua Lipa.

The company raised $113,000 from a Kickstarter campaign in June 2018, and began shipping its product in July 2019.
