Pietro Meneghesso double bass, ca. 1895, just upgraded
Well cared-for, up-to-date, fine orchestral bass. Just authenticated as the work of Pietro Meneghesso, Padua. Very good condition inside and out. The flat back and ribs are poplar.The bass has a very accessible shape and is subsequently highly enjoyable to play on, with the refined, detailed sound of a fine Italian bass, excellent projection, and evenness across the register. Even on the G string and up into thumb position, it has warmth, richness, and smoothness in the response. It has just had a new fingerboard, C extension, bridge, tailpiece, ebony bumpers, and endpin installed in our workshop! A great find in this price range - don't miss it!
