Kai Arvi, renowned Canadian Bassmaker is now stocking his basses on the West Coast at Lemur Music. This represents the gold standard in Arvi's work. Built for orchestra play with an extension fingerboard (Kai Arvi original). This particular bass was a hard working bass for more than 20 years in a Utah symphony orchestra. It will anchor just about any section. We put it through Lemur's full setup process and it truly plays like butter now. Plus it's fully aged and opened up to its full potential. The bass is in excellent condition, well cared for during its two decades in the dryer Western climate of Utah. It's a 7/8 size bass, violin corners, dark brown color.

No kidding -- "Big Boomer" says it all. The sound is loud, with a very solid fundamental. Great low end to carry any section. Bass can be used with no amp on trio gigs. The details: Early 1900's Czeck/German bass with outer linings. No label. Violin corners, deep ribs, long deep C-Bout. Color is Dark amber- light brown color. Due to its age the varnish has a substantial patina. Lovely, really. Yes, it is a Large 7/8 size bass, 43" SPL, but you get a big, boomin, great low- end response, primarily used as a pizz/jazz bass, recording bass. Overall in good health, in good repair. New Lower Price for Winter 2017
