Gliga III Series Double Bass Outfit
Made from tone woods grown in the famous Carpathian Mountain region this model represents outstanding value for a European instrument. Hand carved solid spruce top (belly) and maple flat/bevelled back and sides with attractive violin corners, fine ebony fingerboard and tailpiece, maple bridge and German-made Rubner machine heads, presented in a padded bag and a Brazilwood bow. Available in dark antique or ‘aged’ dark antique oil varnish imported from the famous Hammerl Company in Germany.
This model is available in two patterns:
Gliga’s own German-style with a flat/bevelled back, smaller upper bout to allow accessibility and a large lower bout for increased power and depth of sound.
French style which has much narrower ribs (sides) in the upper bout thus allowing the player easy access to the play area. Special Rubner 2-part individual machine heads are used on this model to suit the stylish elongated French-style peg box and scroll.
