John Cheng Carlo Giuseppe Testore Compatto Bass
A beautiful replica in the time-honored tradition of John Cheng instruments, our new Testore Double Bass will impress any bassist that appreciates tonal complexity, projection, and power. Based on the patterns of the great baroque master builder, favored by the world's greatest bassist, the John Cheng Testore is crafted from fine, patiently aged tonewoods, carved carefully by hand. Tastefully antiqued with a fine, hand-applied spirit varnish, for both aesthetic beauty and tonal resonance. With fine professional geared tuners, top-level New Harmony endpin, and fitted with Pirastro Flexocor Deluxe strings, each Testore is carefully tonally adjusted for optimal playability. Choose from ¾ "Full Size" model, or the Compatto pattern, with narrower shoulders and tapered upper bout ribs, ideal for intricate and fast solo work. 3/4 size.
