Description: Double Bass (Contrabass) - Baranyai Gyorgy, Budapest 2000
This is an incredible jazz bass(also great w bow) with a powerful, deep thoaty tone. It has great sustain and growl on the lower strings. It is more or less a 7/8 size body with deep ribs but the string length is 41.5" and sloping shoulders that, along with low string tension, make it a dream to play on. One does not have to turn the amp up much because of the considerable natural volume. I am including a Kolstein French bow with ivory tip bought in 1990 for $1200. This is an estate item from my family. Questions welcome.
