Fat Bobs Music Box

This Instrument is called Fat Bobs Music Box, actually has two strings attach to it. The body is from an old ceiling lamp, with a metal salad bowl secured to the side opening. From that bowl runs some common household plumbing pipes up to the end where they split off it to two separate ends. One being raised and off set slightly to the left. The instrument also has two music box mounted on the face plate, which was a round cooking tray I found at the Goodwill. Much like many of the single stringed designs, Fat Bob Music box can be played with an ebow, regular bow, slide, plucked, strummed, beat, and basically smacked around however you could think of. He's a fairly durable chunk of metal.
