Benedict G Puglisi – Vincenzo Panormo model – 2012

This was the fourth instrument made using the same spectacular Austrian Maple treeback, the other a flat-back. Completed in April 2012.

These large Panormo style basses move air. Well suit orchestral or jazz playing at a highest standard. This carved back model has a very powerful tone for solo playing, with superb clarity and responsiveness with arco playing. In the upper registers there is sweetness and very clear  projection.

This beautiful Bass is now in New York, proudly owned by Christian McBride. After his  visit to Melbourne for the 2013 International Jazz Festival
