This is a finely crafted Emile Kuehnl double bass bow, French grip, valued at $1,200. FREE to one promising bass player!
Upton Bass has been entrusted by a generous donor to find this bow’s next home. Our intention is to find a student double bassist who deserves an excellent world-class handmade wooden bow!
This holiday season, please contact us if you feel this bow could take your playing (or that of somebody you know, or teach) to the next level.
Contact Upton Bass, tag us on our Facebook page, Instagram, or Twitter #uptonbass #uptonfoundation shoot us a video, or somehow tell us your story. We’d love to learn more about the most promising bassists out there.
In this case there’s just one bow for what must be many deserving (French grip) players, and the decision will be made by our imperfect staff (tempered with the help of educators). But as always it’s the privilege of Upton Bass to get fine instruments into the hands of fine players in our worldwide family of bassists!
