Magnetic Cello

The Magnetic Cello is a stringless instrument by California-based company Magnetovore that’s shaped like a cello and utilizes a resistive ribbon, copper coil, and a magnetic bow to create a deep electronic sound. The company gave a unit to Kentucky cellist Ben Sollee to show off what it can do.
