Sound Post Symphonica String Bass

Basses are very individual beasts, and it’s rare to find new quality basses that won’t (with only a little exaggeration) require you to take out a second mortgage. The Symphonica comes in both violin and gamba forms, with the violin understandably the slightly more expensive. Handmade, with a figured maple two piece back and matching ribs with a table of spruce, it sports an ebony fingerboard, individual machine heads and a boxwood tailpiece with a metal gut. The sonics are suitably sonorous, with a depth and resonance that ought to impress even a seasoned pro. Stick on a set of Thomastik’s and you could be forgiven for thinking that you are playing a German thoroughbred, it’s actually Chinese.
