The Bushman Puglisi Double Bass

 This Double Bass was completed in the early part of 2002. It was made in anticipation of the 2002 South Pacific tour of the Christophorus Symphony Orchestra from Stuttgart, Germany. The Bushman had been utilised by Benedict to showcase his Atelier’s making skills and had been consistently loaned to international and national musicians whilst on tour, or for special occasions.

These have included distinguished performers such as; Harry Shearer (otherwise known as Mr. Burns on The Simpsons); Bassist with Micheline Van Hautem and Mich En Scene at The Famous Spiegeltent; Benoit Dunoyer de Segonzac, bassist with the Jacques Loussier Trio; Italian Bassist Marcello Sebatian at the Italian Jazz Festival; and The Bushman has also accompanied the Three Scottish Tenors.

The Bushman was been consistently praised for its versatility, ease of playing and natural, direct tonal qualities.

This original Puglisi design features a high and sensually arched back. The wide-grain, aged Bavarian maple for the back and ribs also give The Bushman much of its depth of tone. The maple neck is shaped with ease of playing firmly in mind and the top is carved and shaped from aged German spruce. Violin corners and long Maggini style f-holes adorn the instrument, whilst the overall finish is dark with an antiqued, spirit based varnish. The Bushman also features the unique Puglisi jigsaw join in the lower bouts.



The Bushman, like all Atelier Puglisi instruments, is extensively set up to a high standard. This instrument features an 89cm ‘A’ grade ebony fingerboard with matching nut, saddle and Hill style tailpiece. The string length is 105.5 cm (41.5 inches). The endpin is the deluxe German Ulsa type with detachable tip. A deluxe ‘A’ grade French Aubert bridge with brass adjusters has been fitted to suit and original, handmade Royle machine heads, exclusive to Benedict, complete the set up.
