Up for sale is my Stentor Arcadia double bass which is now surplus to requirements. I have owned this bass for around 9 years and it has always been a reliable and playable instrument. It does have some superficial signs of use (see pictures below). Some key points:
- Evah pirazzi weich strings
- Fishman full circle pickup installed
- Medium/low action (adjustable)
- Set up by Laurence Dixon (plays great!)
-Comes with a Tom & Will gig bag (fully functioning apart from the wheels) and a double bass gig stand.
From the Stentor website:
The Stentor Arcadia double bass is an excellent handcrafted instrument, hand carved from selected solid tonewoods, with inlaid purfling. It features a fully carved well flamed back and front and is finished with a hand applied traditional shellac varnish. Each instrument is individually workshop fitted. The Stentor Arcadia is the top of Stentor's range of high-grade orchestral models. These are superb handcrafted instruments, carved from selected and figured tonewoods. It is made in a specialist bass workshop within the Stentor factory, in a traditional luthier's environment that would be familiar to makers throughout the centuries. This produces fine instruments with a superior finish and sound that reflects the making of each instrument.
This really is a great sounding and playing instrument. Ideal for someone who is looking for a gig ready double bass.
I'm looking for £1850 collected. Only trade considered would be a Yamaha SLB 200.
