    William Callow
    Double Bass

    A fine English double bass by William Callow of Nottingham ca 1895. Callow in addition to being a much sought after restorer also made a number of fine instruments specializing in basses. Morris in his book on British Violin Makers reports He made a large number of violins, violas and a large number of double basses, gaining a considerable reputation for his larger instruments. One double bass which I saw was well made, and had an immense volume of tone of good quality.
