Bjorn Stoll Heidelberg™ is a Gamba Form bass, hand-made in Germany. You will find Easy Arco Access from the sloped shoulders, the enlarged C-bout, and use of a taller bridge. The nicely swelled back & sides add extra capacity in the body, creating plenty of volume and projection 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 Bjorn 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 large 7/8 size which really has the power to anchor a section. SPL:41.5"
Heidelberg™ Bass in 7/8 size is an excellent candidate for an 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.
