For Sale: Fully Carved 2003 Kolstein Nardelli bass $8,000 obo in Arizona
3/4 Size, Violin Cornered, Round Back Model
Made in the Kolstein Violin Shop, New York
I've owned this bass for over four years and have won a number of solo competitions with it. It has served me well but I have just recently upgraded to an old German bass.
This bass has a dark tone and is extremely clear. It is easy to play with a 42” string length and shoulders made for going into thumb position. It has a beautiful antiqued dark brown oil varnish.
This Kolstein Nardelli would be perfect for anyone from student through professional looking for an upgrade.
This bass can be seen in Phoenix Arizona. I have a shipping trunk that can be used to ship it if necessary.
