shortbassone with a rounded plastic bottom with a hole placed on the band for greater front projection. It mounts a mixed active/passive amplification system controlled by a switch. The sound is warm and powerful reminiscent of that of the double bass:this is achieved thanks to the Thunder Reds strings by Aquila Corde Armoniche Srl.
The cutway model provides access to the entire keyboard extension.
Amplification system: through a button placed on the volume and tone controls, it is possible to select as needed, the piezo under the bridge bone or alternatively, the transstructing pads positioned under the bridge on the soundboard. The piezo under the bridge bone is an active system, with controls on tone and volume: this solution together with the paraboloid bottom are the winning solutions that have allowed to definitively solve the problem of the return whistle (Larsen effect). Therefore, a clean sound ideal for concerts or recording solos is also guaranteed.
Thunder Reds by Aquila Harmonic Strings: made with an elastomeric polymer, in which it has been added with copper powder: they have been specially improved to ensure better tactile slipperiness on the rope.
