Thumbs up Scallopini in use..

Ok, I took the bass out several nights this week, Wednesday through Saturday. Wednesday was a full Orchestra rehearsal, 4 basses in the section that night. The Bass did just fine. The other nights, Thursday-Saturday were Chamber Orchestra with Concert tonight, Saturday. The Bass did just fine and I have done almost nothing to the set-up since the restoration except put new strings on the bass, Belcantos. I might adjust the set-up in the future but for now, I am just getting used to the bass.

Powerful sounding bass for the venue I played and the tone, superior to most basses I have. Since this needs some break-in time, I will play it as much as possible. If I HAVE to bring a C-extension bass, I will but otherwise, I will bring this bass out and give it so play time.
