It is a well known fact that most stringed instruments use a variety of wood in
their construction as certain woods perform differently to others.
Why is it then that some modern non wooden versions use the same materials
Carbon fibre when laminated with various resins can make a very light, strong and resonant instrument, but just using carbon fibre (and usually epoxy resin) can have limitations.
The Bassix instruments capture the strength and resonance of carbon fibre reinforcement where applicable but blend it with other composite materials to create lightweight and responsive instruments. The materials (like wood) are varied in type and application making the finished article more responsive, often lighter and certainly more cost effective than their 100% carbon fibre / epoxy counterparts.
Also included is a well padded gig bag for day to day use. Almost any proprietary double bass pick up and strings can be used where required.
Various colour options are available. RRP.......£2495 (GBP)

The increased interest in acoustic instruments has prompted the creation of a hybrid combining an acoustic double bass style neck and an oversize banjo type resonant drum. The result produces higher volume than a standard double bass with prominent undertones akin to a mellow vintage bass. The sound projection is also increased and a clear tone is evident across the whole range of the instrument.
The Double bass banjo is played like an upright acoustic bass, uses standard double bass strings and has a conventional double bass style fingerboard (3/4 scale) Lighter than most acoustic basses and able to be packed down for airline travel, this really is a viable way to travel with an acoustic upright.
