1980 Emanuel Wilfer Hybrid round back bass. 3/4 size gamba shape, sold carved spruce top, back and sides are made of compressed maple. Reddish-brown oil varnish highly flamed marking along sides and back. Asking price $2300.00 The sound is strong in the lower register with a bit of a growl, ideal for any type of music jazz, orchestral, rockabilly. New obbligato strings are set low, very easy to play. When playing arco this bass singings with tone in both registers. String length: 41.5 inches. I had bought the bass new in Chicago from Kagin's and Gains. It does have some nicks from usage, but thats about it. Question will be immediately answered (HVahosky@peoplepc.com) Thanks for looking in.
