Double bass 5 strings

06.02.2017
I have this instrument for more than 6 months now
I bought it with a view to mount it in agreement E / A / D / G / C.
On reception (without problem and well protected) it is necessary to mount the bridge, the strings are too high but it sounds correctly for a new instrument of study.
I first played it with its original setup before incurring fees. Of course it must be admitted that this is an instrument of study but good workmanship and in a wood that inspires confidence by contrast the varnish is frankly ugly. The instrument is heavy and the handle is a bit wide (even for a 5 string it could surely be refined).
I then, with the help of a luthier, made modify to mount it with the C high. I used the original easel to find the right round; It is very important to be able to play the bow comfortably. Once the good roundness was found, we cut and mounted a Despiau bridge equipped with a full circle cell, I had to reset (planer) the key to adjust it as best as possible to the curvature of the bridge and mounted a set of strings Velvet compass 180 with ac. I love these strings to play pizz and arco alternately in amplified sound but it makes a 5 strings play at about 400 Euros and if we mount them wrong it can break at the mechanical level. I also had an angled spike installed which involved getting the bottom heel pierced. Once all these transformations made the instrument is very nice to play and adjusted really tailored. The sound starts to open but it takes time. Of course the instrument has doubled in price but still I have a 5 strings bass ac acute at a very affordable price.

Great instrument!

Well, after almost 3 months I can say with certainty that I am fully satisfied with this intrument. This is exactly the sound and the playability I had imagined. Use the bass mainly for jazz.
After a string change to Thomastik Spirocore, I am happy without a doubt :-)
