A boombox that would bring Yo-Yo Ma to tears
Mashup with a double bass is a work of art--or something.
The noise you may hear in the background is one Antonio Stradivari spinning in his 18th century grave.
We honestly don't have anything against the David Ellis, who created it with "medium-modified double bass fiddle, spraypaint, casters, oak, plywood, metal, iPod, two tube pre-amps, B and C mids and tweeters, Electro-voice woofers, JVC tweeters, Crown XLS 602 Poweramp, and Behringer equalizer.", but the monstrosity pictured here looks like a DIY version of something from a CSI autopsy table. This Frankensteinian project is the work of artist
Perhaps most impressive is that he created three of these things, according to Dvice. But at $15,000 apiece, the supply may still exceed the demand.
