: Hi, I am looking for any kind of information on aluminum double basses. Do they still make them? Who was the manufacturer? Where can I get one? Thanks!

You'll find a link to a history of the aluminum basses under the history section of my Links page, URL below. No mfr. is named, and I've seen a couple different flavors of aluminum basses, with varying amounts of wood.

I think there is one on ebay right now, though quite expensive, I believe. I've seen a couple up there before.

To my knowledge, they are extinct as far as production. There is a guy making graphite basses in the Southwest, and I've seen fiberglas basses here and there - but no more aluminum ones.
