One of a half-dozen known basses Armando Piccagliani produced early in his career, this is a handsome, large form example that is reminiscent of the great Venetian makers. The somewhat shallow ribs permit easy facility. The back is made of one piece of poplar and is free from defects. Tonally, this bass has the complexity
and maturity of an instrument well beyond its years. It is offered with certificates from D.F. Robertson and Duane Rosengard.
