The Timberkits double bassist kit comes in a self-assembly pack. The figure and workings can be built by following the instructions enclosed and pegging and gluing parts supplied together. Once assembled correctly, a handle can be turned which drives a system of cams and levers, and the bassist moves his hand, leg and body and ‘plays’ his double bass. The movement can alternatively be driven by a battery kit – available separately, not included.
The bassist kit contains wooden components, PVA glue, sandpaper, parts list and comprehensive instructions. Although described as suitable for age 9 to 90 this kit presents some construction challenges in assembly and the assistance of an adult may be advisable. Indeed, adults may well enjoy assembling this kit too!
Approx. height of model 300mm
