This is an acoustic instrument with no electricity or anything… Natural source coded materials which are membrane, coiled spring and string working together. Maybe we can say that this is a new bridge system between string and resonant body. But generally this is a new design and emit obviously natural vibrations and gives new playing abilities. Very important that it has totally a unique live listening experience!!

A New Acoustic Instrument That Creates Sounds like a Digital Synthesizer sound instruments

The Yabahar is a new acoustic instrument designed by Istanbul-based musician Görkem Şen that emits music right out of a retro sci-fi movie, a remarkable feat considering there isn’t a bit of electricity involved. The Yabahar can be played in a variety of different ways using mallets or with a bow, relying on a combination of two drum-like membranes, long springs, and a tall fretted neck to create music. Like any instrument, it’s capable of producing sounds that run the gamut from “beautiful music” to “noise.” Give it a listen! (via The Creators Project)
