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:
