Puglisi / Da Salò Modello

“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 truly beautiful model comfortable in any ensemble.
This classic model has proven just at home in a Symphony Orchestra as it is in a Jazz festival.


Attention to detail makes for a truly unique interpretation of this enduring and timeless model with it’s wonderful sound.
