The Arco-Boss™ name says it all…. Deep, Dark, Rich & Robust Sound, powerful in the lower register, well focused in the fundamental. If you have dreamed of successfully holding down a chair in an orchestra section, this could be your bass. It is large and powerful, but a breeze to play with its 41” SPL. (Really!) The 7/8 sized body is deeply vaulted, and the top is carefully graduated to maximize harmonic tone. Violin corners, dark brown color with reddish undertones, and medium-fancy woods make for a beautiful double bass that can really anchor a section. Lemur’s All Pro setup enhances Arco Playability for this classic Wilfer Bass.
Arco-Boss Bass 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.
