"The sounds of upright bass are so disersified that one can not reproduce them all, therefore, it does not concern to imitate them, but to give the possibility to the musician to find the spirit of "acoustics". The free floating sound table and its special bridge make the object of an international patent. The table "manages" energy that you apply on the string, limits buzzes, increases the sustain when one needs some. It acts as an expander that develops nuances of the game."
