"The quartett The Stahlcello from Dresden are wellkown for their music with four Steel-Celli. These are a form of string instruments. It looks like an archaic, iron-made construction, but they are designed for the realization of complex compositions and harmonies. The development of the Stahlcello stands in the tradition of the nail violins of the late 18th century, Ernst Chladnis' experiments with vibrating plates around 1800, various instruments with mechanically bowed rods of Romanticism and the Bow Chimes built in the 1960s by Bob Rutman".
