Many luthiers prefer not to deal with double basses because of their size, and because their structure is different from the violin, viola and cello. At Simon Dubber Violins, bass players will find a warm welcome. Simon has carried out many bass repairs, and set up instruments for both classical and jazz players.
Simon Dubber Violins has basses in stock from time to time, but space limitations are often a problem. Nonetheless, good relationships with suppliers enable new basses to be sourced easily, and trade colleagues or other customers sometimes have instruments which can be made available to try out. If you are looking to purchase a bass, it is always worth enquiring what basses are available.
