German A swell back German bass from 1970's, initially set up by Turner Violins Ltd with recent work all done by Godfrey Shepard in Brighton. The bass is an ideal set up for pizzicato jazz with Thomastiks and a lowish action. Trying to describe the nature of sound is difficult but it's big, often used on acoustic gigs and has quite a jazz pedigree having graced the stage with Scott Hamilton, Warren Vache and Ken Peplowski amongst others - it's that kind of bass! Only selling due to retirement. Solid body, ebony fingerboard, lovely head, neck very comfortable and playable and light to carry. The attached Realist pick up is also thrown in.

Reghin 1/4 Reghin Double Bass made in Romania about 10 years ago. Beautiful instrument in immaculate condition which has been upgraded with D'Adarrio Helicore Orchestral strings to produce an outstanding sound. The top is made of solid spruce and the back of solid maple. Neck and sides are all maple. The instrument has been developed by a local luthier Jonathan Beecher in Oxford to enhance the sound and to optimise playing for small hands - bridge and strings have been adjusted to make facilitate use with small hands. These adjustments really do speed up the learning process. Bass bag included in excellent condition. This is collection only from Oxford. However for a small contribution I am happy to deliver within the M40 Oxford to London corridor or can arrange pick up from South Kensington if payment arranged in advance. It is available to try out in Oxford.

Unknown - Rubner style 5/8 Lovely 5/8 size Bohemian double bass, c.1930, made in the same style as Joseph Rubner basses, from an unknown workshop in the same region. It has a particularly slender neck so it's great for smaller hands, but it has loads of tone and remarkable low end for its size. It is set up with some fairly light steel strings, an adjustable bridge, and is fitted with a Bassbalsereit pickup. It has been damaged and repaired (well) a few times in its life but is otherwise in great condition for its age. It's been gigged lots in the four years I've owned it, and though valued at £6000 I would settle for £5600. Could be perfect for a student who wants to move on to a more professional instrument but would benefit from something smaller than a 3/4. I can send more photos on request, and viewings are most welcome.

William Fletcher William Fletcher (Darlington) 1890 5/8 size. An unusual example of an English double bass made in Darlington in 1890 (labelled) by Wm Fletcher. I believe William Fletcher to have been a skilled wood worker/craftsman but I don't believe he was a fulltime/professional maker as his approach to making a double bass seems to be influenced by many European styles. It has a one-piece Poplar carved back (it's actually 3 pieces, one main section and to small pieces added either side to create the extra width needed for the bottom bout). Tightly flamed maple ribs and a nice quality carved spruce front. I have had this bass for about 10 years and have been trying to find out more about this maker with no luck however, I have finally got around to finishing the restoration and I'm very pleased with the out come and it looks and sounds remarkable. Specs; back length 106cm, string length 100cm, d-neck, rib depth 19cm (not including the front and back. Please feel free to ask for more details.
