Northern English Double Bass

This handsome and huge-sounding instrument was made in the second half of the nineteenth century in the northern part of England. Competing with the viol model double basses made by William Tarr and his followers in Manchester, other makers from the north of England preferred to take their inspiration from the double basses made a century earlier in London. This instrument clearly shows the inspiration from old London with its English Stainer-style soundholes, wide purfling, and tubby arch. The head is a fine example of that made by Hawkes & Son and was most likely fitted during conversion to four strings.

String Length:

106.7cm

Length of Back:

114.9cm

Rib Depth:

20.8cm

Upper Bout:

52.2cm

Middle Bout:

Manchester Double Bass

Made in Manchester in the second half of the nineteenth century, this interesting double bass was clearly inspired by the great dynasty of makers from Northern England such as William Tarr, James Cole, and James Briggs. We have fitted a new neck in our workshop, as well as giving the rest of the instrument a good check over and set-up. The easily accommodating upper shoulders make this instrument very playable and the sound is huge for such a compact instrument. A real player’s double bass.
