Great morning with Alexander Edelmann from the @mahlerchamberorchestra checking out some Basses.#kontrabass #doublebass #contrebasse #berlin #contrabaixo #mahlerchamberorchestra

Prof. Silvio Dalla Torre on his Motter Bass. It was the second new Bass i ever did and the first Turandot Model ever.#berlin #kontrabass #contrabaixo #contrebasse #violinmaker #doublebass #uprightbass

Next two Basses nearly done. The Bass in the front is a customer order. Table with rind and knots, wild back and ribs. The varnish will be a moderate aged look. The Bass in the back is a 5- String with poplar ribs and back.

Typical flatback problems! Take always an eye on it and the humidity because its the cause of nearly all your cracks and locked sound. As you can see in the second pic the soundpost was pushed 1,5 cm toward the table! if the flatback is concave, say hi to the next violinmaker. Had to remove all bars and patches , bend the back convex and did new bars and patches.
