Musicora is the Paris Music show where manufacturers, dealers and retailers meet. It's also a neat place to hang around for musicians, pro or amateurs. I was there, invited by F Gougi (thanks) of Schertler France to check-out their new amps. They worked fine in the tiny sound booth. http://www.schertler.com/aboutus.html Worthy of note was a slim DB by young luthier Antoine LeDucq, called AllBasse. Nice sounding instrument, check it out here: http://www.allbasse.com/accueil.htm And Patrick Charton was presenting prototypes of his detachable neck system, which he used on two new original DB (sorry I don't have photos). The system can also be used to transform existing DBs without removing the table. Apart from the improved transportability aspect, the system allows for changing the neck angle and action very easily. It may be available in the future at Gage and Lemur.
