Repair of a Grandfather Lott Double Bass

This beautiful example of John Lott Senior’s work came to us in fairly good external order, sadly the internal work was very poor and the bass had a very dead sound. We completely re did the inside of the instrument. We took great care to preserve the originality of the bass and the results were excellent. We first removed all the previous internal work and braced the front of the bass, we then replaced the bass bar, did some half edging work and re necked the bas with a scroll graft. The results when the bass was finished was outstanding and it is now being enjoyed by all in a major orchestra section.
