Description: Double Bass (Contrabass) - Old double bass; maker, origin unknown
Double bass for sale. The maker and country of origin are unknown. This is truly an interesting instrument; the upper bouts are almost as wide as the lower ones. The tone is especially very warm and full. Thorough restoration by Constantin Popescu of Westport, CT, in December 2005. Appraised for $28,000 BEFORE the addition of a chromatic C-extension by Arnold Schnitzer; the asking price is a great deal!
