C21: A wood and composite material double-bass for the 21st century

MATERIAL

The top, neck and fingerboard are still made out of the traditional woods (spruce, maple and ebony). The back and the sides are made out of a new composite material called « TECHTONE » ® , which qualities are equivalent to vibrating maple (flexibility, spring, resonance, timbre…).

The C21 has no equivalent in its price range as far as deepness of tone, response, sustain are concerned, played pizz or arco.
