This is a combination bass drum, bass guitar, guitar and
that everyone in a band can be playing one of, so that it is
to switch instruments without switching places. Would make great
drum "solos" and 4 part string pieces possible too.
The bass drum would have a foot
pedal and a snare on the side,
double as the sound chamber for the four bass strings which would
be strung over the front of the bass drum and over a fret board
would rise from the top of the bass drum. Next to the four bass
strings and against a regular guitar fret board would be strung 6
regular guitar strings, secured at machine heads that surround a
microphone. There is also a mic in the bass drum. The whole
is of course electric.
There is a bow/drum stick that fits into a pocket on the drum.

Then a bunch of the parts fell off (on the way to a concert,
maybe?) and it sounded great afterward.
