Eberle plywood bass, $800 in NYC
I am selling my first bass:
A fine plywood "Eberle" made in Germany in the 90s.
This bass is easy to play. Good sounds, both pizz and arco. For my money, the bowing is easy, with good angles for the different strings.
I have been learning on it for three years. My playing has come along to where I will be seeking opportunities to play out informally, so I have bought a slightly prettier, slightly more sophisticated-sounding hybrid. I know a player more accomplished than myself that still plays the same model of Eberle that I have for sale. This is a perfect bass for a beginner. Without worries, I have learned to navigate the subway system and deal with other doublebass issues with this bass. It has given me a foundation for judging other basses.
I had it upgraded at Gage's with what I am pretty sure is a Gotz endpin.
$800, which is what I paid for it. Serious local beginners only.
It comes with a bag that is really only fit for taking it home. Unfortunately, I don't have a wheel for you. If you need help figuring that kinda stuff out, I will help you. Comes with a bow quiver.
Thanks for looking,
Couple more pics.
Can someone tell me if that's a Gotz? I told Sprocket to put me a nice endpin on the thing and so he did.
The other pic is of the side of the bass that gets laid on the floor. That's the most extreme scuffing on the bass.
Looks like the new Gotz to me.
And not for nothing people, but that's a couple hunnert right there....
This model bass is my main instrument, and I think it would make a player very happy at this price. Mine, paired with a full circle, makes and excellent combo for R&B, country, bluegrass etc. It holds its own in the jazz context, also (playing straight pizz).
I can see how it could be considered a "beginner" instrument for the serious student with orchestral ambitions. But its also a very good option for the semi/pro with different needs. I recommend this bass, is what I am saying....
Hi Matt, Not quite in your neck of the woods but I think we have the same sentiment for what type of player this bass should go to. I am paying for bass lessons for a 16 year old kid of a friend. His folks don't have much money and he showed a strong interest and is doing really well. He is a math kid and was a drummer in school and is practicing his butt off. Gets to use his teachers upright at lessons but has a fretted acoustic at home. He's shown enough dedication that I am willing to do what I can for him but I can't go for anything more than you are asking for the Eberle. If it's still available and your willing to let it go to the wilds of central NH let me know and we'll see if we can figure it out. thanks, roger
You're doing a great thing helping the kid with lessons.
I have no idea how to get to New Hampshire with a bass. I don't have a car. I don't know what's involved with shipping a bass or the cost.
I am excited by the idea, but I do have some local interest. If we could make some firm arrangements quickly, I wouldn't mind holding the bass for a couple weeks.
I have to say, this goes for anyone willing to pick up the bass.
Hi Matt, give me a call would you? Roger in NH (603)677-2624
Bass is SOLD.
