Why are bows so costly?
Since the late 18th century, pernambuco has been the wood of choice for the best bows. It’s a dense, heavy wood that comes from several areas in Brazil and seems to possess just the right combination of strength, elasticity, and responsiveness. There are many subspecies and enormous variation in quality. Due to environmental degradation, pernambuco is now scarce, and as a result, the government of Brazil has put severe restrictions on the export of this wood, making it rare and expensive.

1920’s FLAT BACK GERMAN UPRIGHT BASS!

1920s Flat Back German Upright Bass

This bass can fill a room with it’s resonant voice!  Comes with a letter of appraisal from Shank’s Strings, who appraised it at $12,000! We’re offering it for $10,000!

Flat Back vs Round Back? 

There are many opinions on the characteristics, value and desirability of flat back vs a carved back upright bass. One of the most common views is that it is less expensive to build a flat back bass because there is no need for the skill of a Luthier. While the technique is different, there is still required tremendous skill and knowledge in instrument making.

 There seems to be a wide range of opinions of sound quality with some saying the best sound can only come from a carved back bass.  Most agree that a flat back bass will be “punchier” with a quick voice. The assumption is that since the sound travels down the sound post directly into one of the cross braces,and the response is immediate. Such a response can be found in this wonderful instrument!


Here are some musical ideas for the bassist in your family:

Bass Bow Quiver by Reunion Blues
Valued $74.95
Attaches to the tailpiece, it is a necessity for the professional as parking for the bow.

Conrad Gotz Upright Bass Bow
Offered at $1,200
A German made French style bow. It was crafted circa 1950, and features an octagonal pernambuco stick.

Pops Bass Rosin
Our Price $18.95
Unwrap the paper a bit and use the very edge of the rosin. Small pieces may break off, but you’ll quickly form a little niche.The choice of how much rosin is needed to get a good grip is very much a players preference, but keep in mind that too much rosin will slow the bow stroke and dampen tone. Too little rosin will result in the bow ‘sliding’ too much to properly start (and control) the string’s vibration.

Spirocore Medium Tension
Priced at $240
They are the benchmark for a jazz string in so many ways: superior volume and sustain, good growl and a true bass fundamental. Give your mediums a week or so to ‘settle down’ for the most long term durability of any steel string we know of..
