Have you been looking for a way to make your iPhone’s ringtone more personalized? Do you enjoy listening to jazz ensembles? Well if you answered yes to one of, or (preferably) both of these questions, you need a Singtone.

What’s a Singtone? Well it’s a ringtone, customized and sung just for you by the folks of Ensemble 101. The group is looking to take its jazz act on the road next year, and they are hoping to use Singtone sales to fund the tour…

The group plans on launching its Singtone Kickstarter project within the next week or so, and is looking to raise in upwards of $2000. It hopes to reach that goal by selling personalized jazz-tuned ringtones like this, for example:

Folks interested in helping out with Ensemble 101’s cause will be able to pledge as little as $1. But if you want to get your own personalized ringtone, you’ll have to pony up a minimum of $25.

Even if you don’t plan on funding the project, you have to admire the group’s originality. There’s not a lot of services out there willing to create customized ringtones for you of this quality, with your name, and send them to you.

We’ll update this post with a link to the Singtone Kickstarter page once it goes live. But in the meantime, let us know what you think about the project in the comments below.

    I like the idea, creative.. But I do not like the ringtone or “singtone” above..

    • Exactly! Only 2 seconds out of 10 do they sound llike they’re singing together.

        I’m pretty sure that was the sound they were going for, and it sounds good in a lot of songs, maybe not that one in particular but disconnected singing can sound good.

  • 25$ for a singtone. idea is pretty much bullshit ..

    Buy a Redbull for 2$ .. and start recording by yourself ..

      Redbull gives you wings, not a voice

      • Hope you aren’t mute ?? ..because scientifically one can sing while flying ..

      • use T-Pain’s Vocoder and BAM! perfect pitch for all horrible singers!
