Joseph Tarr Double Bass

Joseph Tarr was the second son of the famous Northern English double bass maker William Tarr. William's influence can be clearly seen in this rare double bass made by Joseph in 1899, while he was still living in Manchester. This instrument is offered in excellent condition and would be an ideal tool for orchestral or solo playing. The shape of the upper bouts and the dimensions make this double bass very playable, whilst the sizeable lower bouts help to create its huge sound.
