I know that this is an EUB, but I love mine so much and it's the first worthy substitute for my double bass. I'm putting a few links to some Youtube stuff that you can hear it ok. These were made when I first got it, so pardon some rather flexible intonation spots--the Volante is a 41" string length and I'm used to 42", and it's a D neck and I'm used to Eflat. I've since set it up as 42" and had the neck scooped out to Eflat. The bass also has removable lower bouts, but I took them off because my running shoes fit better in their place. The whole bass fite in a hard shell golf club case.
