"The Dame Cleo" 5-string bass with extension SOLD
This unique, great-sounding bass has sold, but the owner, occupied with a project that eclipses any time to play on it, has agreed to allow it to remain on display at QBC through the summer to facilitate anyone who would like us to order one. You're welcome to play on it in-store and have us order your own 5-string of this model, with or without C extension.
This remarkable Calin Wultur Panormo Elite 5-string bass, made 2016 on request for QBC, we have outfitted with a chromatic C extension. To our knowledge, it is the only 5-string double bass with C extension on the market in the world today. 5-octave range from the low C to the highest note on the fingerboard. Beautifully and knowledgeably set up (being players and fans of 5-strings, we understand the particulars of good 5-string setup), solo fingerboard (original - not a fingerboard extension!), powerful and open-sounding (especially for a new bass), and extremely fun to play. Access the double bass solo literature painlessly, as well as the full range of orchestra repertoire. String length: 41 1/4". Bypass the C extension and use a regular low C or B string for ordinary 5-string orchestral tuning. Offered at a phenomenal price for its quality as a bass, not counting its extraordinary capabilities!
We received a lot of interest in a casual photo of the Dame Cleo with "the hatchling" 1/32 size bass. The 1/32 size fully-carved Moretti has a string length equivalent to that of a 1/2 size cello, and is the smallest size double bass on the market, usually a size match for a 4- or 5-year-old beginner. Strings are for octave-higher tuning. This individual instrument is part of our rental inventory, and has been reserved for a customer, but you can reserve a 1/16 size HERE: https://www.quantumbassmarket.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=RENTBASS116 and learn more about our rental programs here: Monthly Stringed Instrument Rentals
