Benedict G Puglisi - Vincenzo Panormo model - 2012

 
This beautiful Bass is now in New York, proudly owned by Christian McBride. After his short visit to Melbourne for the 2013 International Jazz Festival, he performed on this Bass at Hamer Hall and since returing back to the US could not bear to be apart from it.
 
 
Benedict Puglisi made two basses to the same Panormo model as an experiment in sound. 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. Both instruments were completed in April 2012.
 
 
The materials used for Benedicts original instruments are always high quality timbers. For this Panormo model the top is a fine grained Spruce top from Switzerland. Highly Figured Maple from Austria has been used for the scroll, neck, ribs and back. 
 

As part of the experiment, a range of professional bassists compared the two instruments, to find that each had suberb quality of sound but played to different strengths.
 
These large Panormo style basses would well suit orchestral or solo playing at a professional standard. This carved back model has a powerful tone for solo playing, with superb clarity and responsiveness to arco playing. In the upper registers there is sweetness and good projection.

Vienna Kontrabass (5 or 4 string)

A new and distinctive model from Benedict Puglisi's line of double basses. The instrument is an exact model by Lembock, accurately copied to the finest detail and tested against the original.Gabriel Lembock was a Hungarian born Viennese instrument maker famous for his accurate and impressive copies of Viennese double basses and fine Italian instruments. His instruments were praised for their fullness of tone coupled with responsiveness. This bass features gamba corners and a flat back, as well as custom authentic Viennese wooden pegs and fittings. This is an exceptionally versatile bass. It can be set up as a 5 string or 4 string orchestral bass, or in traditional Viennese tuning. The bass has a rich, dark tone well suited to orchestral playing. This is the perfect instrument for a professional looking for something versatile and suited to all circumstances.

    *NEW YORK, NEW YORK*

 

International Jazz legend Christian McBride is now the proud owner of an original Benedict G. Puglisi Double Bass. This Bass landed in the USA early this month and is now being played by Christian. 

 

The 2012 Vincenzo Panormo carved back Bass was first trialed by Christian in Melbourne when he was a featured artist at the 2013 International Jazz festival.

 

It is truly an honour to have an original instrument with this amazing musician. We are sure that there are some amazing things to come from this relationship.
