Over the years, Lemur has stocked the contemporary work of many major bass makers such as Pollmann, Wilfer, Stoll, Scaramelli, and Arvi. We have taken their 'stock' models and we have collaborated with them to create 'Lemur Exclusive' models. We base our knowledge on years of experience talking to both the Makers and Players, like yourself. It is a very exciting and interesting position to hold -- ours here at Lemur Music.
We offer telephone support for all your questions about these wonderful bass makers. Call us if you desire a custom bass. We offer advanced positioning in the production line of many makers and can deliver commissioned basses more quickly than you'd imagine.
The Gentleman Jazz name says it all…. Smooth, refined, strong in the mid-range, powerful in the lower register. If you have dreamed of playing piano trio gigs without an amp, this could be your bass. Violin corners, antique amber color, and medium-fancy woods make for a beautiful double bass that can really move some air, and easily move your heart. Gentleman Jazz has been our most popular Wilfer Model Bass. Our set-up experts can deliver this bass to you with the action you crave. Video presentation is available on page two.
Double Bass makers often grapple with presenting a design that combines lots of air volume and playability. This is an unusual Dresden Model Bass.It’s actually a ¾ size bass, unlike most of the 7/8 Dresden Basses we usually have in stock.Because of its smaller size, this bass is one of the easiest to get around on in the entire shop. Look at the rear view to see how the E-flat neck is perched high upon very sloping shoulders. This allows easy access to the upper-most registers. Both the top and the back of the instrument are very highly vaulted. It's dark, responsive, and very even; must be played to be believed.
Handmade by George Borun, a southern California instrument builder. Beautiful woods are used throughout; note the flamed back and sides. A carved button on the heel of the neck features the maker's initials, GAB. This artist's research into violin making led him to a more "English" styling. The instrument has a very good sound, with a deep, robust lower register, a clear mid- range, and a sweet, singing upper register to boot.
We recently ran this bass thru the workshop to fine-tune its sound and playability. It's in tip-top good shape, with excellent Deep dark robust tones.
We've taken this well-played in bass to a new level by refurbishing it a bit. New Bridge, Endpin, reshaped fingerboard, and the All-Pro Lemur Setup for maximum playability. We rate this one A+. Gamba Form bass, upgraded model, endicia "Emanuel Wilfer" circa 1978. Light red-brown color. Extra nice spruce top. Easy playabililty with 42" scale - an excellent choice for a "move-up student." Right now this bass has Spirocore Mediums on it for jazz play. But we think it could go either way with a customized setup for its next owner. Please click on title above for more pictures.

A Classic Gamba shape, this bass is a sensible choice for university studies or jazz combo work. The wood has been carefully selected for stability and superior tone production. Milano Bass is made in a small workshop setting, with traditional bass making techniques, so you get well-made German craftsmanship at an affordable price. As with all the Stoll Basses, extra attention has been paid to the beautifully antiqued varnish. This is a lot of bass for the money.
