    3/4 Size, Violin Cornered, Round Back Model
    Made in the Kolstein Violin Shop, New York
    U.S. $8,000

    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.
    Top table is a two-piece plate of medium vertical grained spruce
    Back table is a two-piece plate of slab-cut willow
    Ribs of matching willow to that of the back table
    Scroll and neck are of moderately flamed maple
    Individual brass rococo tuning gears
    Oil varnish is deep reddish brown; Antiqued
    Kolstein compensating tailpiece
    Adjustable bridge
    Excellent condition

    Overall body length: 45 1/4 in.
    Width at the upper bout: 19 1/4 in.
    Width at the center bout: 13 3/8 in.
    Width at the lower bout: 25 1/8 in.
    Ribs: 9 in. at endpin tapering to 6 3/4 in. at neck
    Measure (string length): 42 in.
    Kolstein padded bag
