And it’s a carved instrument; I’d say it’s about 2.5 to 3 inches deep. The body is very small. It doesn’t put off a lot of sound, but it’s certainly enough to practice with in a hotel room. But amplified it sounds the most like a double bass of any of the travel double basses that I’ve played so far. And as a perk you don’t pay oversize or overweight charges [on a plane]…The Eminence has proven to be the best [plane travel] solution for me by far, and I really, really enjoy playing it."
