I love how every brief moment in the social web age is subject to capture and broadcast! I’ve seen Jeff Bradetich (Contrabass Conversations guest) noodle around on basses countless times in the past, but since every device seems to be equipped with a camera these days, moments like this that would have passed into obscurity are now captured for posterity.
I know a lot of bassists with Solano basses. They are reasonably priced and many of them play very well. Rumano works off of a lot of different templates for his basses, so his basses can be extremely large, quite small, or anything in between.
Also check out Jeff playing on a Solano copy of his own 1767 Italian bass.
