Specifications / Caractéristiques :
electric double bass , sculpted unique piece
Origin / Origine :
This instrument is a unique piece crafted by the French wood carver Alexandre Berlioz in 2015.
For some time,Alexandre Berlioz, drew inspriration for his pieces from the instruments from the string quatuor. He came up with the idea of making playable instruments for some of his creations.
And yes, Alexandre is a direct descendant of the famous composer Hector Berlioz.
The choice of unusual essences of wood, and rather massive thicknesses forced him to amplify his sculptures.
This sculpture works very well as an electric upright bass.
It is fitted with a adjustable steel stand, making the instrument standing upright on its own. Therefore the sculpture is very well presented and easy to play as an instrument.
This sculpture would be ideal as a silent instrument in an appartment or in studio.
General condition / Etat général :
This sculpture is fitted with a microphone type Underwood.
It is super easy to play, the sound is nice with a huge sustain.
This unique piece is a pleasure for the eye and for playing, but its weight and its steel stand, don’t make it the ideal companion for the road.
