Benedict G Puglisi – Da Salò 2015

“molto vecchio nonno del contrabasso”
Gasparo Da Salò (1542 to 1609), one of the greatest makers and possibly originator of the contrabasso, is the inspiration Benedict has used to combine a number of his instruments and create this classic, powerful sounding model with a contemporary feel.
A wonderfully warm tone which blends in beautifully in any ensemble.
This instrument has spent time in Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as well as jazz ensembles with the Melbourne International jazz festival. Attention to detail makes for a truly unique interpretation of this enduring and timeless model with it’s wonderful sound.
