I didn't realized this until a couple weeks after the concert this picture is from, but if you'll take a look these two basses look very very similar. The cut of the F holes, the scroll(minus the tuners), the overall shape and stance of the instruments look dang near identical. So, what are these two instruments? Well, one is a 1956 Ernst Heinrich Roth hybrid, and the other is very valuable 1929 Juzek with a C extension on the top. The only key difference I noticed, having played both, is that Juzek has a fancy and iconic perfling pattern on the back. Other than this(and the tuners and color obviously), they look and feel very similar. Is this a coincidence? Well, possibly, there is paperwork out there stating that EHR did in fact construct their own double basses in West Germany. Juzek was known(to my best knowledge) to import some of their double basses from Wilfer. Can anyone tell me a little bit more about this, and if they are not both made by wilfer, what is the official name and styling of this pattern(other than the fact they are gamba cornered basses). Thanks for any info you can produce ahead of time!
