This instrument is now proudly owned by Jazz Bassist Larry Grenadier and will feature on his new Solo Project: Larry Grenadier To Record First Solo Recording on ECM
This Puglisi-Panormo model bass is part of a pair of instruments made in part as an exciting experiment in sound. Benedict Puglisi simultaneously made two basses to the same Panormo model, yet one has a carved back, the other a flat-back. This has so far proven an interesting and invaluable experiment in instrument making and acoustics.
As part of the experiment, several professional players had a chance to compare these instruments, and found that both had superb sounds, yet played to different strengths. This flat-back model has a powerful, clear tone with excellent response and a good "punchy" pizzicato sound.
In the end Christain McBribe became the owner of the Carved back Puglisi ,and Larry Grenadier its sister.
