    Few weeks ago I visited a luthier looking for instruments parts, I had an idea in mind for an instrument I wanted to build. My curiosity was to hear the sound of violin, viola and cello strings amplified through the body of a double bass. I came up with a quadruple-neck experimental "something" that I thought to call Experibass.

    To play it I used cello and double bass bows, a little device I built with fishing line and hose clamps, a paintbrush, a fork, spoons, a kick drum pedal and a drum stick. I hope you'll like it!

    Thanks to luthier John Wu for providing me the parts, even though I warned him that I was probably going to create a "monster" : )

  2. Frequency of the bass strings and high shutter speed of the camera led to this surprising string-wobble footage.

    There is no slowmo applied to the take. Sound is original.
    Video was filmed with a Canon 5D MarkII, Nikon 50mm lens on 1,8f.
