This is a really fine example of the Hawkes Panormo model double bass made by Hawkes & Son in London. These instruments were well appreciated at the time of making and in recent years have become much sought after by players. This double bass was made by the Rubner company and is remarkably well preserved. We have recently converted it to five strings, and it plays like an absolute dream with a huge, velvety sound.
