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 boombox's comeback , 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 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."

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.
