I wonder what the sound is like from a double bass made from aluminium and bronze. To be kind, let's assume it was made to look beautiful rather than sound incredible. At auction over at Christie's, the double bass was made by Christian Maas and is one of only 8 created. The fascinating instrument does have an Ecolier Despiau wooden bridge, making me question if it was actually intended to be played! Estimated value is £4,000-6,000 at auction.
