Shen SB 88 oil varnish

August 15, 2012

This is Shen’s oil varnished version of their “workhorse” laminated sb80 bass and we’ve had great luck with this model.   This instrument is well made and looks great. It has a good sounding “thump” and sustain for pizzicato playing,  and the bass is designed for comfortable arco playing as well. They also make a gamba cornered version as well as 5/8 and 1/2 and 1/4 sizes.

Nice setup includes a Despiau bridge, Shen 10mm endpin  and your choice of  D’addario Zyex or Helicore strings.

With Shen bag.

$1900

Please contact us for availability. We try to keep these in stock but it’s a popular bass.
