We have a new model from Shen, a fully carved roundback bass with the back and sides made from willow. It has violin corners and it’s dimensions also make it slightly larger than the willow flat back gamba with a string length of 41 5/8″. It has a nice punchy pizzicato sound and the arco sound is dark, even and full.
This one is nicely set up with a Despiau bridge, Ulsa 10mm endpin and Pirastro Evah Pirazzi strings.
