If you’re too lazy to construct the NES harmonica that surfaced a couple years ago, now’s your chance to cheat and buy one on eBay. As of now, there are seven bids on the Super Mario Bros. 3 cartridge harmonica with six days left, the high bid at $15.50. Not a bad price for an awesome addition to your coffee table of gaming. Here’s what the seller has to say:
This harmonica was constructed by using a Hohner Pocket Pal harmonica and building it into a Super Mario Bros 3 cartridge. As you can see in the picture, this appears to be a standard NES cartridge at first glance. Fool your friends by blowing into it and see the look on their faces when they realize it is a harmonica!!
Harmonicas made from Legend of Zelda and Dick Tracy cartridges are also up from auction. Not sure if this is the same guy who posted a how-to page a couple years back, but here are the instructions if you’ve got spare time and a cartridge you don’t mind parting with. To the high bidder, I suggest you give the cartridge a good wipe down before you start playing the blues. [eBay via GoNintendo and UberGizmo]
