Description: Double Bass (Contrabass) - Wan Bernadel - 2003
Fully carved Wan Bernadel 3/4-size upright bass for sale. 41 1/4 inch string length. This is one of their more highly flamed models with gorgeous wood thoughout. The picture doesn't do it justice.
This was bought from Steve Koscica at String Emporium so you can check out his website and the testimonials. (see below)
A rib crack has been expertly repaired. It has a big sound, very even across the registers and compares very favorably to much more expensive instruments. It is well-suited for both jazz and classical. It is very well set-up so is easy to play, especially in thumb position. One of the other things I really liked about this bass was the hardware. The Rubner French style machines are beautiful and have an excellent gear ratio. The end-pin assembly is brass and works nicely.
It comes with a black, deluxe (extra padding, nicer material) Mooradian case.
