Description: Double Bass (Contrabass) - Panarmo Copy, made by Rumano Solano
Double Bass, Vinzenso Panormo copy, made by Rumano Solano of Severna Park, MD, in 1999. C extension made by Mark Hogan of A440 in Chicago, IL, with capos on the E and D. Back, neck, scroll, and sides made of Maple, top made of Spruce. The bass has a nice tone and great clarity, especially in the upper register. Shoulders are very easy to get around, would be a great solo instrument, as well as orchestral or jazz. Appraised by David Gage in New York at $12,500.
Recent set up work (new bridge and soundpost, fixed crack) done by Michael Shank in PA. I would prefer to sell it to someone relatively close, but would consider going through the sending process.
