This page is dedicated to some notable basses I have come across over the years. They are fascinating old things and they have a story. I guess in the information age we will record details such as owners, orchestras, where they have been and what sort of music they were involved with, but for the older basses its a matter of word of mouth, which of course can be the victim of chinese whispers over the years. Many details have died with thier owners. Below are the stories of a few old basses.
