Beautiful boombox echoes from within double-bass enclosure

EllisSKDUBSGold.jpg

It's not new–the SKDUBS GOLD double bass boombox fiddle was made in 2005–but it's wonderful enough by far to warrant a belated look. Only three were built, apparently, and the remaining example is $15,000.

Built in a real double bass, the media are listed as "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."
