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.)
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.
