Rubner Double Bass


This interesting Double Bass is believed to have been made by Mastermaker Josef Rubner around the 1900s.

Josef Rubner worked at Markneukirchen from 1882-1927.  Specialist in cellos and double basses, he made models either labelled "Concert" or "Solo".  He made a wide variety of other styles of bass, including basses of violin form, highly arched, finely flamed wood, and five strings.  

(Universal Diction of Violin and Bow Makers, Henley, 1973 ed.)

A German valuation of this instrument from 1967 states (translated): The instrument is well preserved with normal wear from use.

A warm and grand sound, this carved back instrument is suited to both jazz and classical application.
