Description: Double Bass (Contrabass) - "Bohemian Labeled" Double Bass ca. 1900
There are no pictures available for this double bass (contrabass)
This wonderful sounding old 3/4 size carved bass, ca. 1900, was formerly owned by the late Harold Siegal, Chicago studio musician and educator. It plays extremely evenly in all registers and features a punchy Jazz pizz sound and a singing arco. I've played it on recordings by The Rob Parton Quartet, Bob Lark featuring Phil Woods, Mark Colby Quartet and Greg Fishman's "Saxophone Etudes" play-along series and it records beautifully. It is also the arco bass heard on the Contrabassconversations.com theme song as played by Jason Heath.
It was set up in 2006 by master luthier Scott Henrie, is healthy and ready to make music!
