Fax: 323-255-5946;
US agent: Luck's
  Specializing in double bass music. All solo bass works from Ludwin are available in two keys to accommodate the tuning used by the soloist: solo tuning (low to high: F#, B, E, A) or a whole step lower for standard orchestral tuning (E, A, D, G). A useful way to think of it: in solo tuning, the double bass is effectively in a D transposition.
