|Ben Lee and his Arcus E4 bow - the fastest violinist in the World - it's official!
Guinness World Records confirmed Ben has broken the record again but this time on the acoustic violin as they have 2 categories, electric and acoustic violin.
So Ben is now the 3-times Undisputed Guinness World Record holder setting both records below the "magic-minute" barrier with a time of 58.515 seconds.
Ben is the only person in history to have set a time below 60 secs which many said would not be possible. Not unless you have a perfect technique and of course use an Arcus bow!
