TRANSFORMER UNE CONTREBASSE CLASSIQUE EN CONTREBASSE DEMONTABLE ET REGLABLE

TURN ANY DOUBLE BASS INTO A TRAVEL BASS WITH DETACHABLE NECK AND ADJUSTABLE ACTION

On any double bass my system allows to detach and put back the neck in a few seconds by turning a wheel on its side. The wheel also allows string action control by rotation of the neck :

How it is done

In a few days your bass can be turned into a travel bass with detachable and adjustable neck. The neck is sawn at the foot and the system is installed under the fingerboard and into the foot.
All axis are respected and only a thin space is visible. The neck is as strong as before.
To go back to the initial state the neck can be glued back to its foot or we can make a graft : neither the top nor the back butt nor the upper block have been touched.

Transport :

A classical double bass which requires a huge hard case can now fit into a unique strong small case only weighing around 50 lbs depending on the weight of the bass itself.
