My Double Bass

I have a 160 year old Flat-back Hand-carved German Double Bass.  Recently I had some repairs and updates made to the instrument, including a top crack sealed, 2 seams closed, then a new bridge, a set of new ‘Blue Velvet’ strings and a Furman “Full Circle’ pick-up.   What a remarkable difference this has made in both the playability and sound!  Thought I would share some of the pics.
