Hawkes & Son Panormo Model Double Bass

POA

Magnificent Panormo Model Hawkes & Son Double Bass.
This Bass has very recently flown North!!

This astonishing instrument, made in 1906 by the famous Hawkes & Son Makers, is a Panormo Model.
The instruments manufactured by Hawkes & Son during the latter quarter of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century were often supplied to the plethora of military bands prevelant at that time, particularly in England.
There three main grades of instruments, 
born from the unmatchable artistry of Vincenzo Panormo's instruments are named the Professor, Concert and Panormo.

Many of these fine instruments were imported from Germany and France, as a result of a high demand for instruments of both quality and enduring robustness. The Concert and Panormo models are of superior timber choices, workmanship and finish than those of the Professor.
This particular Bass has a dynamic, powerful, formidable sound - characteristics often inherent in Hawkes & Son instruments.  

This unique instrument has violin corners and a two-piece, fully carved maple back with matching ribs and scroll.  The instrument is fitted with original Hawkes & Son machine heads (4 strings) and is also fitted with a C extension from Atelier Puglisi.

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.
