Electric Bass Harmonitar

Electric bass harmonitar is a new instrument developed by Scott F. Hall on December 25, 2006 from a parent instrument--a standard four-string electric bass guitar. Unlike the bass, the harmonitar has no frets and no fretless fingerboard--it is played polyphonically only through the sounding of harmonic partials. Within just one tuning, it produces a full chromatic scale of harmonics which may be used to play any melody and/or chord that is possible on piano. Like a chromatic harp, the notes sustain and fade away gradually to silence.
