  • 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" :  )

  •         Just added the violin and viola necks.
  •          Adding a double bass bridge.
  •         Adding strings.
  •         I played the main tonal groove by hitting the strings with a drum stick.
  •         The vibrations generated by hitting the fork were amplified through the instrument.
  •         Also a big spoon was resonating well when put in contact with the strings.
  •         Here I was using the body of the Experibass as a kick drum.
