The strings are made with a core of pure natural silk, an organic material very similar to gut that, with the addition of  textile fibres and a slow winding process, rules out the tuning and short lifespan issues associated with gut strings. The strings feature a tension similar to steel strings and a very fast and vibrant response with rich harmonics, strong bass and powerful projection. Perfect for amplified applications. The new Velvet Cello strings will undoubtedly enrich the cellists performance.

21st anniversary!2016
The month of July marks the 21st anniversary of the opening of my Showroom and Atelier in Hawthorn.
Time goes fast when your having fun! Times like this I reflect on one of my biggest inspirations. My Nonno Puglisi. A proud and hard-working fruiter, who understood the meaning of honest caring service. I just love this photo! Taken in 1966 i believe . I was just 1yo.
And i should mention that he was also an amazing fisherman! And could build anything he wanted.
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.




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.
