koostik

Don’t call us oldbut sometimes music can be too loud.  Yeah, we’re all for tracks with bass that rattles your rearview and amps pinned to 11, but sometimes you just want to chill.  For those times, forget the big tech setup you’ve got, and drop your iPhone into the Koostik.  The Koostik uses your iPhone’s built in speaker and amplifies the sound acoustically.  Yup, you aren’t plugging anything in.  Made from solid wood and crafted by hand, the Koostik is a real, all-natural amp.  All your buttons and controls are left accessible so there are no knobs, levels or faders to mess with, just the touch screen you’re used to.  Plus, since you aren’t plugging into a power strip, it’s also a great portable unit.  The Koostik is the amplifier our ancestors would use when they listened to Belle and Sebastian.
