H. T. Haeberlein Copy (W. Germany)

  • Very Good + Condition
  • Year: 1950
  • Includes Soft Shell Case


A powerful instrument from the collection of Scott Freilich, this fantastic 3/4 sized upright is of West German origin (indicating US Zone), and was made in the style of violins by H. T. Haeberlein. A wonderful boomy bass, that has been slapped before and should be slapped again. Used for many years as a daily driver, this bass sports sticks of flames, a BASS bumper sticker, and has a bridge wheel pickup. The laminate body shows lots of exterior wear and tear (we've heard of folks standing on these things before), but no structural concerns to report. The Eb neck is of maple, has a two piece heel, and a remarkably large profile; pegbox is intact despite chunk missing on top, with original gears fully functional. String length: 40".
