    Hi guys,
    I'm thinking on buying this double bass.I know is old italian bass but don't know exact year or luthier.I'm trying it for about 2 weeks and I love how it's sound.
    I'm classical music player and I need it for gigs and some solo recital playing.I just wonder if any of you can tell me something about this bass ( may be Ken...).It's sounds realy nice.
    The price is quite high but I have feeling that this could be the one.It is about 25-30.000 euros
    many thanks

    I've took some better fotos.In the shop they sad that it is Italian Bass but they don't know who is the maker.It has some stamp but is not original.
    In my opinion it is Italian bass but I can't tell how old.
    The sound is very nice and strong.Bass is very even in all the string.
    I have 2-3 days left to say if i want it o no.
    I appreciate any help....
