The size of this instrument would appeal not only to players looking for an instrument a bit smaller than a typical 3/4, but might also work as a solo bass or “pit bass”. The projection is impressive for a smaller instrument and the arco response is quick.
Set up with an Aubert bridge, New Harmony carbon endpin and D’addario kaplan strings.
Sold, but others on order.
