Description: Double Bass (Contrabass) - New Christopher 200-Series Double Upright Bass with Full Setup
New Christopher 200-Series double bass in gamba shape. 3/4 size laminated bass with all-spruce laminate top, all-maple laminate sides and back with mild figuring.
The bass has received a full Norton setup which also includes an upgraded Despiau bridge blank, MPM aluminum adjusters and an aircraft cable tailpiece cord. Set up with steel strings primarily for pizz, but is easily bowed. Bass also includes a basic bag as supplied by Christopher.
This bass represents an excellent value, and possesses a remarkably full tone for a fully-laminated instrument. In fact, noted jazz bassist Michael Moore sold his high-dollar carved instruments and has been touring and recording with his Christopher 200-series for the past several years! Like all new basses from Norton Customs, this instrument is a Great Bass - Guaranteed! See site for details.
