E.M. Pollmann double bass, custom built for Jerry Buffa, owner Lemur Music, in 1997. Busseto shape, 7/8 body with string playing length of 40.5 inches. Very easy to play. Incredible fundamental, with exceptionally clear mid-range. Impeccable condition. Nicely aged dark amber color. Traditional Bavarian styling from Mike and Ralph Krahmer with extra deep ribs, highly valuted top and back; full ornaments hand carved on back, ribs, front. Top table wood was 80 years old when the bass was made. Custom brass keys, now retired pattern.
Jerry and I discussed the future of his bass at great lengths before he passed in 2014. He very much wanted his favorite and best bass to continue in play, to bring enjoyment and musical pleasure to both players and audiences. I'm really pleased with that idea. Please contact Lemur for further details of the sale. Thank you, Toni Buffa
