Bass for Sale?

Discussion in 'DB Classifieds Archive' started by bassbgruven, Jul 15, 2004.

  1. I am considering parting with one of my double bass. The bass in question was made by Rumano Solano and is a 7/8 with a figured maple back and sides (tiger maple I believe) and the typical spruce top. It has violin corners and is a Parnormo copy, but he made the shoulders with a little more slope for easier thumb position access.

    It was made around 1996 and has opened up well. It is a beautiful instrument with a warm and focussed tone. Does anyone know what his instruments are selling for today? I have had this appraised for insurance purposes, but my appraisal is about 5 years old now.

    If you are interested please E-mail me privately @ mdtbirmingham@earthlink.net
  3. very helpful information ;) I am always so appreciative of the brotherhood of the bass. :D
