Martin Penning
fine stringed instrument maker

This bass was commissioned by Dritan Gani, bassist with the Bilkent Symphony Orchestra in Ankara, Turkey.

Dritan wanted a bass for his solo repertoire with easy access to the upper register without lacking depth on the E string. He got used to the bass very quickly when he came to the U.K and tried it for the first time , he then used it for a concert only 2 days later.
