19 Feb 2016 United Kingdom German 3/4-Size Double Bass with Low C Extension

I believe that this bass was made in Saxony between the two World Wars - as evidenced by the replacement of one of the tuning keys with a 1915 coin! It is in very good condition, with a beautiful tone; the low end is particularly strong given its smaller size. The set-up is good, and it plays very easily - it would make an excellent student instrument. It comes with a soft case and a rosewood bow. Buyer to collect, although I could deliver near Berks/Surrey/Hants. Offers considered.

This is a 5 string bussetto model bass I had made for me by Mr Bryant a few years ago. It has a really lovely brown oil varnish and deep 9 inch ribs. The back is flat. Although I have used it as a 5 string, and loaned it out to other players as such, I am currently using it with four gut strings for playing in period performance ensembles. The bridge, by Laurence Dixon, is notched for both 4 and 5 string use. If you would like to try it, I'd be happy to string it to your preference.
