New Calin Wultur Elite gamba cornered bass

October 22, 2014

Here’s a new 3/4 sized Romanian bass modeled on a German gamba shape. This has a carved round back and is made from European  spruce and maple.  The maple is moderately flamed  with a bit of birds eye figure in the back as well.  Golden brown varnish with some nicely done antiquing. Some dimensions:

string length 41 3/8″

lower bout width 27″

upper bout width 20″

rib depth lower bout 8 5/8″

rib depth at the neck block 6 3/4″

distance from bottom of bass to top of button 45 1/4″

Set up with a Despiau bridge, Ullsperger endpin and currently strung with Pirastro Obligato strings.  This is a good bass with a nice sound and good  projection.

Sold, but we have another that were setting up now.
