SOLD: Wenzl B Wilfer Double Bass 1965 Germany

Wenzl B. Wilfer double bass, son of Emanuel Wilfer the elder, built in Bubenreuth Germany in 1965. A classic style from this third-generation builder of basses and cello, the stout plate dimensions are paired with medium shallow ribs for a very large, direct sound.  The Wilfer workshop made most of the finer labeled John Juzek upright basses.

Beautiful, consistent tiger flamed maple highlight the back and sides, with arrow straight spruce. Classic German instrument, low on ornament but beaming with the quality of wood and build expertise.  Owned by a symphony player, its condition absolutely defies its age.
