doublebass and three bows for sale




    A mid-19th century Bohemian bass which belonged to Harry Aoki in his last years, this instrument is possessed of abundant character both visually and acoustically. A misguided effort at revarnishing some decades ago resulted in the present mottled colouration. The bass is stable, well adjusted, sounding solid. Asking $12,500. All prices are in Canadian dollars.
