    The price? : roughly 3500$ or 3000€. Not really expensive in comparison to a full sized 3/4 Double Bass. However, when considering the fact that it is designed for bassists who travel, the air fares alone will increase its initial selling price in the long run. No doubt a great idea for our changing times, even though it can never replace the original parent instrument.

  • A similar concept for cello has been around for years, called the “prakticello,” although the maker retired recently.

    In the Grassi museum in Leipzig there’s a travelling piano. Travelling in the sense you fold it up into a suitcase, like those picnic- table-with-chairs that you could buy last century. That certainly took some imagination.

    There’s also a carbon fiber, telescoping alp horn.
