Robust Student Instrument

This student double bass is a sturdy and reliable instrument ideal for beginners and younger musicians. The body is made from a varnished laminate Spruce top and Basswood back and sides, making it lightweight, tough and flexible. The inlaid purfling helps to protect against cracks forming at the edge of the instrument and allows the top to flex more freely.

The Ebonized Hardwood fingerboard prevents the build-up of moisture and ensures a long lasting instrument. The fitted Maple bridge and metal tailpiece are hard wearing and durable fittings. Easy to use, geared brass tuners on the head allow for simple and quick tuning.

Warm Tone

This double bass produces a warm and even sound throughout the registers. The steel core strings create a clear and crisp tone as the beginner develops proper playing technique. Each string has silk wrappings to help students identify the notes and to create friction against the tuning pegs.

3/4 Jazz Size Bass

This Jazz Double Bass has been designed for all types of music. The instrument has a resonant body that is easy to reach around, even for smaller players. The fitted Maple bridge provides optimum height above the fingerboard, making it suitable for both bowing and plucking.

Includes Bow, Rosin and Case

The bass comes with everything the beginner needs to get playing straight away. The bow, made from Brazilwood and synthetic hair, is easy to use and robust, meaning it will withstand the stresses of students learning proper bowing techniques. A half mounted frog and Ebony adjuster make it easy to use and comfortable to hold.

The canvas covered case is easy to carry and provides reliable protection for the instrument. Wheels on the bottom mean it can be rolled around and shoulder straps mean it can be put on your back with ease. Pockets both inside and out are handy to store the included rosin and other accessories.
