I am looking to buy an upright bass which will comfortably fit in my Morgan 3-wheeler. I remember that some years ago,the Wanker Mfg Co. of Ylsiplanti,Michigan offered an inflatable doublebass. Of course,the neck and center section was made of wood,but the rest of the instrument was made of hard rubber treated in such a way as to give the appearance of fine wood. The body was easily inflated by means of a bicycle pump,or orally if one was of sound breath. They actually sound quite well;however the bass was difficult to hold out of doors in high winds. I will pay top dollar if anyone out there has a used Wanker they are willing to part with.
