Hi Katie,

My company, Guarneri House, is located in Grand Rapids, MI, and we specialize in double basses. The owner, Steven Reiley, was a player for years in the Grand Rapids and Detriot Symphony Orchestras. Now he devotes himself full time to making and repairing basses. He has made 40 basses, and bows for players like Gary Karr.

We sell imports and domestic basses, and have several available in your price range. Email me at for more information.

I look forward to hearing from you!
