15 Feb 2017 United Kingdom Paul Claudot c.1850

A great double bass by the French maker Paul Claudot This is a classic early example. Beautifully carved scroll, good choice of wood, typical older French tuners, the classic Claudot outline. Not too deep in the rib making it easy to get around. This example has a rich, deep, and velvet sound that we really enjoy. Fun to play - this would suit a fine orchestral player not in the market for a fine Italian bass or a Jazz player just as well.

25 Aug 2016 United Kingdom T&G Martin Solo Double Bass

I am reluctantly selling this bass which is similar to the Martin 3/4 bass but with a narrower upper bout for improved playability. SL 102cm, LoB 107cm, UB 49.5cm, LB 67cm. I purchased the bass new at the end of last year and it has been lightly gigged. It has an even, balanced and clear tone which will improve with playing. Strung with SpiroMitts and fitted with Full Circle pickup. Original bridge available to be re-fitted. It's a lovely bass, typical of the Martins' work.
