29 Mar 2016 United Kingdom William A Mackay

Bass made in 2011 and based on the outline of a Wiliam Tarr. Built to a high standard and truly handmade. Each and every aspect of the making of this bass was done by hand without the use of machinery and using traditional techniques as practiced by the masters. The large body viol outline gives this bass good volume. Lovely bottom end though also well defined in the high to mid range. The neck is a pleasure to play and the bass has been well set up with Pirastro Obligato strings.


Certification: Labelled by the maker and certificate of authenticity available.
