    I'm selling a beautiful 7/8 1930's German bass labeled "Vitali" on the inside. This bass was played for 6 years at Colburn and was played in the finals of major American orchestras. Prior the bass was used to win the Principal Bass audition for the Alabama Symphony. The instrument has an articulate, loud, and clean sound with plenty of cushion and growl on the low end. This bass is perfect for someone looking for an instrument to take them through college and into the professional world. Although I play mostly classical, this would make an absolutely top end jazz bass as well.
    Appraised by Lisa Gass for $17,000.
