The Clarus amps were designed to accurately reproduce the sound of all acoustic and electric instruments without compromise or the size and weight that has traditionally be associated with high quality amplification.

Unlike other solid state amps, the Clarus has a distinct, warm sound, more like a tube amp. In addition, the Clarus is not "voiced" like many electronic instrument amps. So its frequency response is flat. This means that, with a high quality speaker system (like the Contra EX), what you hear is your sound of your instrument. The tonal shaping characteristics of the three-band EQ are sufficient to overcome room acoustics or to shape your sound without adding noise to the signal.

At the heart of the Clarus is a powerful Class D switch mode amplifier that runs cool yet delivers up to 1000 Watts of clean, full spectrum power into speaker loads as low as 2 ohms. Other features include a parallel effects loop with a return level control, a selectable notch or low cut filter for feedback or "boominess" elimination and a balanced direct out with ground lift and pre/post EQ selection to allow connection to a mixing board for PA augmentation or recording. A switch for dual voltage operation (115/230V, 50/60 Hz), a detachable power cord and a padded gig bag with shoulder strap make the unit convenient for the travelling musician.

Clarus amps are for the working player looking for exceptionally clean, natural sound, with wide frequency response and low noise. Carried in one hand, or in the supplied gig bag, they provide an exceptional combination of pure sound reproduction and portability.

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.
