A close-up shot of the scroll of a double bass photographed (with the permission of the player, Iain MacAulay) at a gig I attended at the Customs House, Mill Dam, South Shields, Tyne and Wear, England, on 13 December 2012.
“Beneath the scroll, are the tuning pegs.The pegs are fitted into the Peg box. Violins, violas, and cellos are built with tension pegs, which means the pegs are held in place by friction caused by the snug fit between the pegs and the peg holes. Double Basses use machine pegs.” (Michael Hopkins “String Pedagogy Notebook”
Camera details:- Canon PowerShot A3200 IS, Auto setting. Flash fired.

My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!
