French 5/8 size


Amazing rare 5/8 size classic French Mirecourt bass circa 1880.  A superbly made instrument with the power of a much larger bass.  The bass plays great in all registers and moves well under the bow.  A once in a lifetime opportunity for the many players out there struggling with a larger instrument.  Many smaller instruments of this time period were made for young students.  This bass is made for a high level professional!

The bass is in excellent condition and has been set up in our shop.  Everything completely original down to the tuners.
