An English 5/8 double bass made in Darlington in 1890 (labelled) by Wm Fletcher.
I believe William Fletcher to have been a skilled wood worker/craftsman but not a professional northern English double bass maker. His approach to making a double bass seems to be influenced by many European styles and a few of his own. I believe this to be the only one made by this particular individual. It has a one-piece Poplar carved back, tightly flamed maple ribs and a nice quality carved spruce front. Both front and back have a distinctive, single strand of maple purfling. Ebony fingerboard/tailpiece, Flexocore strings, adjustable bridge, and German half plate machines.
Specs;
back length 106cm
string length 100cm
d-neck
rib depth 19cm
Smaller size instruments like this generally would be suitable as a chamber/ solo bass, or for someone who is physically smaller but I believe it has the depth of tone to work well in an orchestra.
Resent restoration has dramatically improved this instr
