More from Trent Wagler of The Steel Wheels.

Trent Wagler of Americana quartet The Steel Wheels cooked up something he's taken to calling simply "The Stick." Watch this video for an idea of how a broom handle with washers and jingle bells on it is a fine accompaniment to four-part harmony singing.

And note below a slightly more rustic version of the stick The Beat ourselves made just acouple months ago. We called it the Jangle Stick. Yes, it's the trunk from an old Christmas tree, with zils from a few old tambourines and some bottle caps.

And to find out more about the inspiration for that marvelous four-part singing, check out our interview with Wagler here.
