William Tarr Orchestral Bass ~ "made by William Tarr 1829 No 8"

89,000.00

This is an early Bass by William Tarr, 1829 #8. One of the 9 Basses he made for 'The Gentleman's Orchestra' at Manchester aka 'The Halle Orchestra' in which William Tarr was a bassist there for 12 years. This is a rare Violin cornered model Flatback. The upper and lower bouts were slightly reduced in 1959. A very manageable Organ sounding 7/8 Bass with C-Extension. As big as this Bass looks, it is not at all as hard to play as one might suspect. The current set-up is a joy to play. The sound is thunderous. The tone is clear, smooth and organ-like in the lower registers.
