About This Item

Don't let the low price fool you...this fully-laminated bass is not only attractive, but plays superbly! Gamba shape is perfect for young players beginning to master the higher positions. Quality is evident throughout, from the smoothly-functioning machine-head, adjustable bridge, high-quality veneers and ebony fittings. Our skilled shop technicians adjust each bass, install new strings and send it to our test player, who makes final adjustments.

Laminated Construction

These Franz Hoffmann basses are made of fine laminates rather than solid wood. This is a more economical choice that also has the advantage of being more durable, especially in resisting cracks which can be common in larger instruments. Our customers have confirmed that these basses have amazing tonal qualities!

Here is what one of the country's best-known orchestra teachers recently had to say about this bass: Shar's Franz HoffmannBass is well-constructed, looks great and has excellent set-up. But best of all, it sounds great and is easy to play! This is easily the best value in a student bass today! - Bob Phillips, Well-known String Educator and composer.
