Heidelberg™ is a Gamba Form bass with Easy Arco Access from the sloped shoulders, slightly enlarged C-bout, and taller bridge. The nicely swelled back & sides add extra capacity in the body making plenty of volume for orchestra play. We have the top carved to Lemur Specs and a special sizing on the bass bar which releases very good fundamental on the low strings. Back and sides are poplar, the top is spruce. We order Stoll basses in a rich, dark red-brown finish that is hand rubbed to a glossy luster. Heidelberg is available in 3-4 size for advancing players as well as 4-4 size which really has the power to anchor a section.
Heidelberg™ Bass in 4/4 size is an excellent candidate for a Lemur Music Gated Extension Machine. Her size and strength will easily accommodate the extra tension of the machine, and produce the deep fundamentals you need on the Long Fourth String. All gates are adjustable along the length of the extension fingerboard enabling our Luthiers to fine-tune each position, calculating exactly for each bass’s precise tuning requirements.
