I love the Dusty Strings D300, but like everyone here, I always missed the
I had James Jones build me a small travel instrument, modeled on the D300,
but having not only the Eb3, but also going up to A6. It has the same
top-end configuration I originally requested on my Juggernaut, built by
Steve Raschella, and the only missing note is G#6.
James Jones 2/14/13/8 travel
Page with a brief description of the 2/14/13/8, second instrument
It's a touch smaller than an Apprentice, and it's chromatic enough for my
sensibilites. It will fit into a bow case.
Although all my instruments have their extended bass bridges on the left, I
can understand that coming down to personal tastes. However, it's not much
different from being at the top right end and reaching down and left for
Eb4, or being on the left of the treble bridge and reaching up and
right for Bb4 or Eb5.
Whatever you choose, good luck!
