    This bass is in very good condition and has been played in jazz, orchestral and solo settings. I have loved playing this instrument since 2001 but due to an injury to the second finger on my left hand I need to down size my string length! The upper bout sloping shoulders make it easy to play and get around in the upper positions.
    The bass has a big warm sound and good response. I have had many comments from world class bassists about the great sound of the instrument and the ease of playing. These players, including: Michael Janisch, Hans Glawischnig, Corcoron Holt, Dave Santoro and Trey Henry, all used the bass while performing at the UW-La Crosse Jazz Festival.

    I purchased the bass at David Gage String Instrument repair in 2001. In 2005, the bass got a new fingerboard and bridge with adjusters. This work was done by Henry Bohem at The Double Bass Workshop in Madsion, WI. This instrument has been well maintained and needs a good home! Included in price is a custom sized Mooradian Case.
