Old 3/4 Double Bass of French origins. The last 2 valuations on this instrument state it as being LE BERTE 1912.
It may be a LE BERTE however I suspect it being an older instrument than 1912. The machine heads have been changed at some stage when it was converted from a 3 string. This is a great professional instrument that has been used daily by its owner in a major Australian Symphony Orchestra for the last 20 years. The bass is in excellent condition.
Includes black Mooradian deluxe cover and Thomastick Dominant strings
