American bass player Jay Elfenbein acquired the first Ruby Gamba in 2003. This being the only yellow Ruby Gamba, made it perfect for playing jazz, blues and improvised music. Jay taught me to adjust the instrument a bit, add a second transducer, and he shows the world that the viol is a perfect instrument for jazz. Jay played a few years for the Cirque du Soleil and is a great advocate of the contemporary possibilities of the viola da gamba. Enjoy. He performs in France, with his spouse Andree Pages. You can find them here.
