I'm selling my Poller 3/4 (standard) size double bass. Really great bass for students or jazz/rockabilly. I gigged it professionally for several years before upgrading.
It's made in Romania in the early 90s. It has been my backup bass for the last few years but I can’t justify keeping two at the moment.
Makes a great bass for a student or an electric bass player taking up upright - I’ve gigged it and and it is very light so great for carrying around to gigs etc. I’ll include a soft case and I can probably find a spare double bass stand if you would like one too.
Price drop to £795 and open to sensible offers and happy to chuck in the Realist for a little extra.
I'm currently located in Surrey/Kingston so delivery/trial around the south east is possible. You are welcome to come for a socially distanced play in the garden but serious buyers only please. Any questions let me know!
Hi, I'm planning to buy this travel bass from Mr. Ross Anderson in Australia, would like to know opinions of people who have used it, comes with spirocore mediums, K&K bass max pickup, soft case and a fiberglass hard case. it looks a lot like the Czech ease bass but very affordable and sounds great!!
Are you a decent bass guitarist ?
Have you had a double bass propped up in the corner for years ?
Have you tried it a few times, hurt your hand....then put it back ?
Yes thought so, that was me about 30 years ago.
I'm a graduate of Leeds College of Music, back in the eighties, and have spent the last 30 odd years working as a professional bass player. It took me a while to come to terms with playing the double bass from the perspective of a bass guitarist....but I did.
My CV is fairly extensive, including some of the worlds most divers venues and festivals (literally from the Hollywood Bowl, down to the local Pub). I am usually a busy player, working for many theatres, studios gigs from Dame Shirley Bassey to Bjork, and most things in-between. During lockdown, I've still managed a few on-line sessions for Trinity/Guildhall tutor books and a couple of big band sessions.
I am exploring on-line teaching, we have a purpose built studio, my wife uses it teach Saxophone, so I'm learning her "tricks of the trade" re working remotely, and actually, whilst not as good as face-to-face, it certainly works.
As a minimum you'll need a decent smart-phone/tablet/laptop and decent headphones....and a decent internet connection. The experience is better with a decent USB mic or some way of D.I. ing into your computer or device, and a wired connection but I'm more than happy to advise on this.
I'll upload some sound files later, so you can hear me play, see if you like what you hear. Due to the amount of variables involved, I'm more than happy to an initial meeting/lesson/tech session for free, just to see if both get on, and the system works.
After that I would charge my usual teaching rate £30/h or £15/30 mins.....I'm completely flexible, and no requirement for regular or weekly lessons etc....just PAYG !
Happy to chat at any time. Lessons in English, any time zone catered for !

Flight case or hard case for 3/4 double bass.
It came with a new bass I bought, its in perfect condition - I would say it has never been taken on tour or seemingly anywhere before.
Maybe someone on here could make good use of it.
