5-String Double Bass by Neuner & Hornsteiner, Mittenwald circa 1880
Having undergone a full rebuild, this nicely proportioned instrument is presented in structurally A1 condition. The varnish is an inspired reproduction of what would originally have been on the instrument and the instrument sports a setup of the highest standard.
With regard to the instrument’s sound the volume and tonal qualities are not just good but extraordinary good.
