Volante Double Bass

Today’s #ThrowbackThursday video features Maurice Dupont and the stunning Volante double bass.

Although the biggest selling point of the Volante is that it is a travel bass that looks like a regular bass, another is that it can be set up in 5 mins… a fact that often gets challenged by people (especially when they see us doing it for the first time when we haven’t had one in the showroom for a while 😉😮).

So here’s Maurice, taking his time and not rushing, setting the Volante up in under 5 minutes.

Farewell No.50

12 - VolanteWe hit a landmark at the weekend as we sold the 50th Volante produced by Maurice Dupont.  It’s hard to credit that there are actually 50 of these wonderful instruments out there…

Sending an instrument out is a time of mixed emotion as, unlike many retailers where it is all about the money, for us it is all about matching the instrument to the player.  In many respects we’re a bit like marriage brokers as, when we find the right instrument for the right player we can see him or her fall in love with it and we know it’ll be a long, happy, and rewarding relationship.

We are fortunate to be able to offer our current Volante at, what could well be, the unrepeatable price of £3395 thanks to the favourable forex.

07 - web volanteThe standard 4-string right-handed version is currently available to try before you buy at The Old Dairy with a left-handed version custom built at no extra cost.  5-string versions are also available to order.  You can check out the specs here.

Don’t wait too long though as, at this price, we don’t expect to hold on to it for very long and we cannot guarantee this great price on subsequent Volantes.
