Some reviews say the app doesn't sound like a washboard, but it does use audio samples taken from a real washboard. The samples come from a metal board played with 1" zinc washers -- this gives a sound harder than thimbles but softer than spoons -- and include a tap, scrub and wood sound. The add-on instruments also use real audio samples. Instruments include:

- Small cowbell
- Large cowbell
- Small horn
- Large horn
- Tambourine
- Cymbal
- Small woodblock
- Large woodblock
- Service bell
- Vibraslap
- Toy chicken

Decorations (no sound) include:

- Toy dinosaur
- Flower
- Bow tie
- Hula girl
- Woody Guthrie sticker
- Party lights

If you have any MIDI equipment, you can also use Washboard as a MIDI controller. Map each instrument in the app to a note number in your sound module, then tap the board or attached instruments to send note-on commands. The MIDI commands are sent on channel 10 for easy access to most percussion modules.
