Double Bass Bows

Our showroom has a great range of Double Bass Bows in both French and German Styles.


Our Entry Level Double Bass Bows are reliably built brazilwood bows that give you strength and balance perfect for students and those that aren't bowing a great deal, or for those looking to trial a different bow grip. The balance, tone and playability with a new brazilwood bow perform to a high standard. These bows are great value for money too!


For something a little longer lasting, with a more refined tone, balance and playability, our carbon fibre bows are a very affordable option for advanced students and professionals. Schumann Carbon Fibre Double Bass Bows are often mistaken for wooden bows in their look (with the pernambuco finish), and in a blind test for feel and tone. These bows are also perfect for situations where a more delicate wooden bow may risk environmental damage or in a hectic school/learning environment for both teacher and student. Double bass bows that are carbon fibre are also very easy to pick up and play, with less idiosyncrasies than can be found with wooden bows.


Carbon fibre bows can be rehaired countlessly as they don't tend to lose their playabilty as the less dense wooden bows may. Think of it as an investment!


Looking for a Double Bass Bow to take you places? Our Advanced bows and Bows of Significance are always available for trial in the showroom. All bows can be loaned for up to one week for approval in the practise room, home, lesson, studio or stage.

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.
