Samuel Kolstein and Sons is the world renowned Luthier, famous for the Samuel Kolstein registered bows and limited production double basses. Under the supervision of his son, Barrie, the tradition continues that caters to the requirement of the upper echelon players.
Fine European Made Bass finished up by Master Shop here in the USA.
The top of the bass is "tuned" several times during final work to maximize its balance and responsiveness.
The result is a $10,000 bass sound - even and full across the whole register. You'll KNOW WHY this is a $10,000 bass once you hear it, AWESOME evenness from low to highest notes, AND growls and sustains BIG TIME, and sings like a canary on the upper end!
I have not heard this kind of balanced full sound on less expensive basses.
It is inspirational to hear this level of bass sounding off. Invest in one and be glad you did every time you hear it.
