    2500

    Location:
    Massachusetts
    PRICE DROP! 2300

    I'm selling my Shen bass because I recently got a Seth Kimmel bass and I don't play my Shen as much anymore. I am also purchasing a Boris Fritsch bow and am trying to cover some of that cost.

    It is currently located in Southeastern Massachusetts.

    This bass is excellently set up by Zachary Martin, a luthier in Rhode Island that some of the BSO members use. I purchased it directly from him and have been the only owner. The bass was made in 2006 and it has been played a lot over the years. This is a nice broken-in and open sounding bass in great condition. Very easy to play and good for orchestra or jazz. Also could be a good bass for a serious solo setup. This is the bass that I used for college auditions and it is the bass that I used until I got a very serious fully carved instrument.

    Adjustable bridge and Bel Canto strings that are in decent condition. Every teacher I've shown it to has agreed, it is a great bass for the money!


    Comes with Mooradian deluxe bag and an Ingles stand!

    Would normally go for $3,200 new (with the gig bag), I'm asking $2,500. This bass is priced to move fast!

    I will be headed to Chicago in several weeks, so if anyone in the Chicago area is interested I could bring the bass there as well.

    I will also be headed in the New York direction on my way to Chicago so New York and Chicago folks, feel free to pm me about this if you are interested.

    This is a great bass for a great price, not to mention the bow and bass stand that come along with it. I've already had a couple people interested so it won't last long.

    Bass is still available. Sorry NY people, my car couldn't fit the extra bass and I am now in Chicago. On the bright side, the bass is still in southeastern MA and is not too far of a drive!
     
  11. Where are you in "southeastern Mass"? I'm on the outer cape with some interest. I have to admit I am mondo ignorant about double bass, so be forewarned.

    My intended use is largely for Blues.

    If I were to bring this bass to Chicago, would there be anyone in the Chicago area that is interested in it? I would be willing to bring it as far as Minneapolis too to make a sale. So if there is anyone in Indiana (preferably Indianapolis or West Lafayette), Madison, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, or Chicago that is very interested, please PM me
