“Dear Ben, I have to tell that your instruments are AMAZING!!! I had such a wonderful time playing your instruments in Melbourne. I’ve got to say don’t fall in love easily but in this case I can make an exception. Choosing between your carved back and flat back models is a very hard task indeed. They both have such incredible qualities. So comfortable and clear in the upper register. I can’t wait to have one of these for keeps.”
Regarded as one of the great virtuoso Double Bass players of our time, he is also one of the most recorded musicians of his generation, having appeared on close to 300 recordings as a sideman before the age of 40. He is also a 3-time Grammy award winner.
In 2013 he was the headline act for the Melbourne International Jazz Festival where he performed exclusively on Benedicts Panormo model Double Bass. He is now the proud owner of this model that he uses in live performances and recordings all over the world.
