Key of Z Rubboards AKA , Washboards,Frottoir,scrubboard, are the original makers of the washboard as we know them today, Tee Don is the son of Willie Landry who designed and created the first over the shoulder Frottoir for Clifton & Cleveland Chenier in 1946 in Port Arthur ,Texas. Key of Z rubboards are also in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, and many other museums around the world. Key of Z Rubboads have been made for many artist such as , ZZ Top, Kid Rock, Rihanna, and many many others. Own a piece of history. Medium pitch.
Tee Don custom handcrafts every Rubboard as they are ordered.
My Rubboards are finished the old fashioned way,the way we have been doing it since 1946, by rubbing the edges with a finishing stone. Then I buff out the edges with scuffing pads for a nice clean smooth edge.
I’m a proud owner of three Tee Don Landry professional level rubboards. I keep buying washboards from Tee Don Landry because of their super top quality. They are built to last. I know firsthand because I have one that I have been using at gigs since 2013. I bought my second rubboard in 2013 because I have a thing about keeping my washboards in good condition. I also have another washboard that my parents bought for me as a Christmas present in 2009. I use that one for practice at home. I have a thing about keeping my first washboard safe at home.
I will use my newest washboard for gigs also. My newest washboard seems to do an excellent job with protecting the neck and shoulders. Having the protective device towards the neck and shoulders is a brilliant idea. I will continue doing my best with spreading the good word of Tee Don Landry Key of Z Rubboards.
Thank you so much for the great review and your business. Thank you for spreading the love of my creations. Enjoy! Tee Don
Absolutely love my genuine Key of Z zydeco rubboard! Item arrived in perfect condition and included all parts listed online. This will be perfect for small room and front porch music jams, all the way up to dance halls and parades! It means a lot to be able to play a rubboard with the same design and made by the same family as the original and first 1946 'over the shoulder' played by Cleveland Chenier. Can't wait to learn my way around it!
Thank you for the great review. I am sure you will have many many years of joy playing your new rubboard. Tee Don
