This awesomely unusual musical instrument is called a “Triolin.” It was created by artist and instrument maker Alex Sobolev by building three violins and then joining them together.
“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.”
