SOLD German Flatback Bass

Discussion in 'For Sale: Double Basses' started by Randy Ward, Aug 23, 2016.

  1. Price:
    This is a German bass, size 7/8

    length of the strings: 107 cm (42.126 inches)

    The instrument was completely restored in October 2015 by the Italian bass maker Giuseppe Cazzaniga, who restored many very old basses for the Scala in Milano. He estimates that the bass is 150-160 years old and that its value is at least $12,000.00
    All reasonable offers considered.

    The E string and the A string sound full and mighty and the instrument responds evenly throughout all four strings.

    The bass was brought over from Europe for a series of concerts this last January.
    More Pics available upon request.

  2. When the bass was shipped from Europe it came in what was described as a 'hard case' this will be included with purchase. I have not seen the case but will post photos of it soon.
