Default Antonio Panelli Double Bass

Hello,

Iím searching for a 5 string Double bass.
Has anyone already played on a Panelli basse?
Here is a link of his web-site : www.antoniopanelli.com/instruments.html

Few years ago, I had the opportunity to try a 4 string basse built by him and I liked it very much!
Thank you in advance for your answers.

Never head of them but if that bass is 9500 Euros and is hand made in Italy, it is very cheap. That is more like the price of a Romanian made bass, contracted to his model and finished off by him. Hard to believe that is the price for a bass he makes in Italy from scratch from wood.

Dear Ken,

Thank you for your answer.
Maybe the wood is not Italian, but the construction of the instruments is completely made in Italy.
Mayhap for USA the italian luthiers have higher prices.

In 2016 I played a wonderfull basse by Panelli. Great sound and very very good tonal blend.
The problem is that it was a 4 string and as Iím playing in professionals orchestras, I need a 5 string basse.
I spoke with Mr. Panelli and he is constructing instruments only if I pass a order before. He has a lot of orders and there is a waiting list of about one year.
For that reason I would like to have some advices of people who already played a 5 string basse by Mr. Antonio Panelli.

Kind regards
