In Reply to: good bass for orchestra/chamber music posted by Dave on November 28, 2002 at 04:13:09:
Looks like I may have missed my chance at the Shen so...
I'm looking for a carved bass good for orchestra and/or chamber music in the $3000.00 range.
Looking for good depth and projection
(preferably within 15 hours of Columbus, Oh)
: I'm thinking about a carved Samuel Shen approx 10 yrs old for 3000.00.
: The purpose of the bass would be strictly arco (orchestra or chamber music)
: This one has no label.
: It seems to be very resonant (and it's a pretty light bass)
: My questions are:
: Does anyone have a comments regarding Shen basses (particularly of this vintage)?
: Has anyone seen a Shen with no label?
: Anyone have advice on somthing else I should consider for the same price?
