    Xavier Jacquet bass circa 1850 Mirecourt. Audition winning bass - I won my position as Assistant Principal of New Jersey Symphony, and Joe Conyers won Principal of Grand Rapids on this bass.

    41.5" string length. Round back. Last three years seen new bridge, tailpiece, and endpin, and this summer had new cleats put in and every crack resealed. X Jacquet stamp inside.

    Lots of power and punch, clarity and evenness. Currently in New York but can travel to show the bass.

    I've played some tremendous Jaquet's. This is a gorgeous instrument very balanced. Power and clarity. Good luck with the sale.
