Christopher Upright Basses

Christopher Basses - Carved Eastman Basses

Christopher's Double Basses

Double basses by Christopher are made with pre-formed laminated veneers, a construction technique that gives the arch of the bass strength to resist succumbing to the weight of the strings, a common failure in many basses as they age. The back is deeply arched, yielding a fuller, richer tone, and the basses are finished in a medium golden brown durable varnish. They are supplied expertly set-up (with either Classical or Pizzicato action at your request), however, the bridge is removed for shipping. Please allow 3-6 weeks for delivery of set-up basses.

Save 10%: We will ship the basses with the default factory set-up for 10% less than our published price. This includes bag, strings, adjustable bridge, and soundpost. It is playable as-is, but lacks the important refinements that we perform. You may then have the bass set-up at the local shop of your choice, or you may do the set-up work yourself (experience required).
