    An excellent, fully carved upright bass for a great price. Made in Romania by Mathias Thoma. 3/4 size, violin corners, flatback, all ebony fittings, inlayed purfling front and back, adjustable bridge. A beautiful medium shade finish and an even, tight grain pattern on the spruce top.

    This bass has an open, rich voice both arco and pizzicato—and will be well suited for the advancing instrumentalist in any genre. There is a focus in the tone that only a carved instrument can offer and a broad dynamic palette to utilize. A beautiful, cello-like appearance in the shoulders and lower bout shape, and a comfortable medium neck size. Full measurements below.

    String Length: 42”
    Bridge Height: 6”
    Overstand: 1.25”
    Rib Depth (neck joint): 7.5”
    Rib Depth (upper bout): 8.25”
    Rib Depth (lower bout): 8.5”
    Upper Bout: 20.5”
    Lower Bout: 26.5”

    With bag and bass
