We love Kickstarter. For every cockamamie idea (or ten) that gets posted, you see something genuinely interesting. Like the iTar ($200 and up). Submitted by longtime makers of button-based guitar fretboards, the iTar combines one of these legendary 'boards with an iPad case/dock, offering nearly endless possibilities for music creation and manipulation, all while holding something that looks like a guitar, but has an iPad for a body. What could be better? [Scouted by Jim]

  • iVictrola

    We've seen our fair share of non-electronic sound amplifiers, but never one this... grand. The iVictrola ($985) merges an antique Magnavox phonograph horn with two pieces of American walnut along with your iPad to create what's basically a giant megaphone for its normally not-that-loud speaker, filling your space with sound without using a drop of electricity. Available this November in limited numbers.

  • StompBox

    Looking to expand the music creation capabilities of your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch? The StompBox ($100) is a good place to start. This pro-quality foot controller gives you four configurable foot-activated switches to let you switch up your sound in mid-riff, while the included GuitarConnect cable ensures you can keep your guitar, headphones and iOS device in perfect connected harmony.
