||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.
