Thomas and George Martin 3/4 Double Bass NEW, Oxfordshire, England, 2018
The Martin 3/4 double bass is built with generous proportions and classic English style. Slightly smaller than the grand designs that inspired it. Like all Martin basses, the 3/4 model is built with fine woods and traditional methods.
Please note this is a new, mint condition Martin 3/4 double bass. Upton Bass currently has four recently built Martins awaiting their first owner. If you’ve been interested in a Martin on this side of the Atlantic, this is a unique moment to audition and choose one of these outstanding contrabasses. +1 (860) 535-9399.
From the maker: “This instrument is based on our Martin 4/4 model, though the whole outline has been reduced from the original resulting in a 2.5cm shorter string length. Being slightly smaller, this model is hugely playable but still retains the classic London Brescian styling. It is a great all-round double bass. Thomas Martin still enjoys playing his ¾ model to this day.“
