ITA and mezzo-forte strike the right note 

The ITA and the company mezzo-forte Streichinstrumente, Werther, Germany, jointly developed together a decomposable double bass made out of carbon reinforced plastics whose neck and corpus can be dismantled through a junction made out of carbon reinforced plastics, too.

This leads to a big advantage in terms of transport: The decomposable double bass measures 1.10 metres in the length instead of 2 metres length in disassembled condition. Thereby the decomposable double bass can be carried by car and in standard luggage boxes.

The actual innovation is that both the junction and the double bass are made out of carbon reinforced plastics. Carbon reinforced plastics represent an ideal construction material for building a double bass because of its high rigidity and good mechanical characteristics.
