Watch as Bass guitar legend Victor Wooten makes some funk-“e” magic with a surprise instrument from his Reverb Mystery Box…
Watch as Bass guitar legend Victor Wooten unwraps the Reverb Mystery Box Challenge and makes music with a surprise instrument…an electric bow for his bass!
Ever imagined what would happen if you played the bass guitar with a violin bow, vibrating each string to create some truly funk sounds — this is your chance!
Watch Victor take the Reverb Mystery Box Challenge and make some unique music with his new e-bow here.
If unfamiliar with the Mystery Box Challenge, the premise is simple: every Thursday since October 21st, Reverb has tasked a different artist to make music with an instrument totally unfamiliar to them. Victor Wooten’s epic attempt was no different, as he unboxed and experimented with the hand-held electronic bow for his bass guitar.
Even better, fans can join in the fun by purchasing their own Mystery Box from Reverb for just $25 through December 9th (next Thursday!) — with all proceeds benefiting a youth music education organization. Each week’s package features a different instrument, an exciting, affordable gift for those in search of the perfect holiday present for the music makers in their life.
