I wonder if the developer of the Luis and Clark instruments was familiar with Mr. Thompson’s sailing hobby. He developed the body of the Luis and Clark cello after studying the fiberglas sailboat.

So really, there is a more substantial body of history here than I for one had realized. I think it’s time for some qualified maker to give it a try, whether lever or pedal.

As another interesting sidebar (NOT OT), Luis Leguia has often said that if a musician is willing to play one of the instruments the opinion expressed will have merit, but someone who rejects the idea on tradition alone is not in a position to speak positively or negatively. (broadly paraphrased).
