A New Precedent For The Low Price Double Bass

A professional grade instrument, crafted from select woods, the Archer ¾ double bass sets a new precedent for this price range with its beautiful sound and finish. The Archer craftsmen have selected Canadian spruce for the top of the bass with a fine and even grain, whilst the back is Canadian maple, chosen for its superior tone and resonant quality, as well as its beautiful deep flame. The ribs and scroll are also made using maple.

Suitable for many musicals genres including jazz, classical or rock n roll, this Archer double bass offers projection and clarity enough to produce a solid underpinning in ensemble pieces or solo performances.

Warm Versatile Tone With Projection & Depth Of Response

This Archer bass has a rich and deep tone, with plenty of projection and depth of response, and as such is the ideal instrument for the advancing or accomplished player giving them all the features they require from their chosen instrument. It plays like an instrument way above its price range and will reward any player with superior sound.

Hardwood and brass fittings are used throughout and the double bass is completed with a traditional burnt orange/brown finish with a deep flame back. This Archer bass comes complete with a high-quality, light weight Styrofoam hard case with wheels, so your instrument is proteced and portable.

This hand crafted instrument is the perfect choice for anyone requiring a premium quality double bass that provides a warm versatile tone suitable for a range of styles.

Press Reviews

"For all styles we could come up with, we were pleasantly surprised by the tone of the bass...the plucked tone is warm and well balanced."

"The adjustable maple bridge and even a little sandpaper applied to the underside of its feet will allow you to set it to your exact tastes. It's equally convincing when bowed, with the just the right mix of rasp from the bow and depth from the spruce, and, all in all, we're impressed."
