Endeavour 'ARTISAN' 1/2 size Double Bass

"To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts—such is the duty of the artist." -Robert Schumann



ENDEAVOUR 'Artisan' series 1/2 size double bass. Complete with bow, bag, and rosin. 

Endeavour double basses are lovingly hand made in a meticulous workshop in China. They have the characteristics of good tonal quality, plus correct measurements and specifications - an ideal combination. This is because Endeavour is a New Zealand brand, and all specifications are to design and quality standards of The String Workshop in Auckland NZ. 

Endeavour 'Artisan' series double basses are hand crafted with a high grade fine-grained solid spruce top, high grade solid flamed maple back and sides, hand inlaid purfling, and an ebony fingerboard. 

The Endeavour 'Artisan' double bass is a fine example of an instrument with value and quality that far surpasses its price tag, meeting the specific needs of advancing students. Completely hand-carved from select solid tonewoods, this double bass is one of the best available at this price point!
