Stringulator, A.K.A. Experiment 289, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba. He is designed to destroy string instruments. His one true place is working at a music store repairing broken instruments.
Experiment 289 was the 289th genetic experiment created by Jumba with Hämsterviel's funding. He was designed to destroy string instruments (does so by being able to control the rate that the strings on string based instruments vibrate causing the instrument to emit an awful lot of extremely loud noise before cracking and finally falling to pieces).
289 and the other first 624 experiments were deactivated and smuggled to Earth by Jumba during his mission to capture Experiment 626.
All of the experiment pods were released and scattered across the island of Kauai.
At the unknown point, 289 was activated, captured, tamed, and named Stringulator.
He is able to reconstruct the instruments that he destroys.
