Glenn Donnellan, a violinist with the National Symphony Orchestra, has made an electronic violin out of a standard issue baseball bat. A baseball bat! This I had to see.

Come to find out, Jim posted a video of himself playing the national anthem on his invention. I must say he impressed me with his performance and with his instrument. The sound reminded me of Jimi Hendrix’s rendition at Woodstock. I think I’ll go back and give both another listen.
