This Panormo model bass is part of a pair of instruments made as an exciting experiment in sound. Benedict Puglisi simultaneously made two basses to the same Panormo model, yet one has a carved back, the other a flat-back. This has so far proven an interesting and invaluable experiment in instrument making and acoustics.
As part of the experiment, several professional players had a chance to compare these instruments, and found that both had superb sounds, yet played to different strengths. This flat-back model has a powerful, clear tone with excellent response and a good "punchy" pizzicato sound.
These large Panormo style basses would well suit orchestral, solo or jazz playing at a professional standard.
