Broom-Pole & Tin Box Bass (OSM Ind. Product Ref: 0029)

This instrument is still in development and has changed significantly since the first version.
The broom pole has been integrated with the tin box which now allows the string to be 'fretted' rather than having to play it with a slide.
The next experiment will be to string it with a steel top 'E' string but it wouldn't be a bass then, would it?
Still, it's great fun to play and produces some really spooky tunes:
