The Stentor Student is great for students and beginners. This is a good choice for you if you are wanting to pursue double bass further and want your first instrument or maybe your first upgrade. The price and quality are perfect if you're a student and your budget for a new instrument is limited. The bass comes with a good quality bow so you will have everything you would need to play the bass. A padded rayon bass cover is included as well for transport and storage.
This instrument is made out of the solid tonewoods, maple and spruce. These woods are selected specially for their tonal properties. The bass is hand carved on the front with spruce and back and sides are laminated maple. Maple is a traditional wood used in string instrument construction and is the same wood you'll find on top of the range and antique instruments. A chestnut brown varnish ensures a high quality, antique feeling finish to the bass. The machine tuning heads are brass ensuring a precise and stable tuning.
Stentor are a well known and well regarded string instrument maker, especially amongst teachers and students. You can often find their instruments in school music departments or being recommended by teachers. This is due to their cheap price but good quality and durable construction, making them ideal for these settings. This is the explicit goal of Stentor who believe that every child should have an opportunity to play a musical instrument and that music should be a part of everyone's personal development in life.
