Rumano Solano Half Size Double Bass 1997, Severna Park, Maryland

Smaller fully carved Solano flatback gamba shape, offered with case. Could make a fine solo tuned instrument.


This Rumano Solano 1/2 Size Double Bass from 1997 is another short scale instrument from this builder. Rumano Solano is an active Virginia-based luthier and concert bassist.

We’ve seen a few of his always unique and custom instruments, ranging from diminutive creative gamba shapes to large section instruments. Here is another built in a smaller format, sharing with other Solanos excellent upper register access and ease of play.

A small gem with many possibilities from this highly original double bass builder.
