Triolin, A Handmade Triple Violin

Triolin by Alex Sobolev

Artist and instrument maker Alex Sobolev built three violins and joined them together to create the “Triolin.” The instrument is quite striking but rather impractical—because the violins are joined at the base, musicians must play them upside down, more like a cello. In addition to making the occasional Frankenstein instrument, Sobolev is working on an intriguing electric violin that will be able to mimic the sounds of rare and antique violins.
