Thanks heavens I’m broke, or no session anywhere in the world would be safe from me.

The most important thing is the correct fitting of the neck joint, and the correct lining-up and fastening it each time.
The concept has been eagerly awaited for some time; double basses are a pain to carry about ! I borrowed one once…was glad I had a Volvo estate to carry it in. ( A very old Volvo I should point out, one of these £600 semi-pro musician jobs. )

Excellent design.
My fiddle looked like that (neck separated from body) when I dropped it on stage just prior to a gig in Chelsea once. Unfortunately it did not go back quite as easily. Not a good day.

I saw this ad a couple of years ago. Wasn’t it on this site?

Dear Oldstrings,
It’s from the Lemur Music site, a house exclusively for double basses, in California. Here is their link:
