C. Hermann Voigt 5-String double bass built in 1900
5-string scale 107 cm
Built as a 5-string bass in 1900 for the Vienna Concert-Verein (orchestra which was based in the Vienna Musikverein and later became the Vienna Symphony Orchestra). This special instrument was delivered by C. Hermann Voigt to the orchestra situated in the Vienna Musikverein. Most likely it is a southern German master instrument, which was completed in the Viennese Workshop. An incredibly voluminous, fast responding bass. Soft in tone, but with lots of projection. Strong and loud tone. An absolute top instrument for the demanding musician. This bass enhances every bass group with its enormous tone. Conveniently playable even in the high registers with soloist qualities. Very good condition, perfectly restored and optimally set up.
(On some screens, the photos can look slightly red-stitched. But the bass is brownish!)
