have (porta)bass will travel

This is Claudio, a musician from Chile, playing a double bass especially constructed for him “par son luthier” for his travels. Performing on Queen Street, Friday afternoon.

Click to have a closer look at the pictures. The instrument is mostly a fretboard with a collapsible metal tripod, one leg forward, one behind and the third shortened with a cradle at the end that rests against his left thigh. Lovely!
