Small pail-size washboards are light-weight and easy to haul around
Multi-Grammy Award winner and folkroots legend, David Holt insists, "The size of the washboard does not improve the sound." So your small pail-size washboard is no second-class citizen. It's a fine musical instrument in its own right. In fact, more of our customers buy these little guys than their larger family-size cousins. They're sturdy little buggers too. The main advantage is these compact instruments are a lot easier to store in your backpack or car trunk—and they don't weigh you down.
