Hoffner 3/4 Double Bass

Over 120 years old and still going strong! Sound great!
This well loved double bass was originally brought over from England, and as the story goes, was orginally played in the Spike Milligan Band.
The instrument is stamped as a Hoffner, and is most likely one of their earlier instruments.
The instrument is easy to play, has good tone, and is very versatile - though would possibly best suit a jazz player.
