Balloon Bassist Addi Somek, jams with Box drummer

Balloon artist Sean Rooney devised the principle of the balloon resonator in 1992 and invented an instrument he called the balloon guitar.

Since then, compatriot balloon artist Addi Somek applied some tweaks to it and has come up with what must be the cheapest bass guitar on the planet, and it sounds amazingly like the real thing. Here, in this video, Addi duos with a drummer friend playing a wooden box.

Addi has recently released his debut album Air, Rubber and Soul, now available here as a free download, but don't forget to drop by Addi Somekh's website to learn more about how you can make this unbelievably easy and cheap balloon bass.
