Description: Double Bass (Contrabass) - Nice old double basses
This is a nice, old Viennese or German bass.
There is a label inside that could be by Bittner. It's fun to play this one with the sloped shoulders. Easy to get up and around thumb positioning. It is also in fantastic condition with a lovely honey-brown colored varnish. There is a nice repair behind the neck joint (button) with a extra piece added for re-enforcement. It has the older style hat peg (ebony) tuners and flat back. Upper bouts 19", lower bouts 25 1/2" length of back 43 1/2" and the string length is 41 3/4". Email me for more pictures about this one and a few others.
