    Kolstein Fendt, full size bass, purchased in 2001 at the Kolstein shop in Baldwin, NY. I have used this instrument on several major recordings, including the following:


    Here's a link to me playing the bass with Joe Locke:

    I purchased the bass for 8K, and have put approx. 5k into it. Understanding the current market, I'm selling it for far less than it's worth.

    Here's a link to pics the official documents from Kolstein pertaining to the instrument, with measurements.

    It is the original neck. I had it re-shaped a bit as it was very thick.

    I had a new, thick, pure black ebony fingerboard put on 8 years ago by luthier Mark Sonksen in Chicago. It really adds more meat to the sound.

    The tips of the violin corners are broken off on the lower bout of the back of the bass.

    As you'll hear, it's got a huge sound.
