Bresque Basses

2018 Gamba Hybrid "Double Take" model $4500

This is a great carved-top model with a carefully antiqued finish, for the jazzer or student who knows what they are doing and who doesn't want the brand new look ...  the mojo blends nicely with older instruments. This model is well built and sounds great.

The gently sloping gamba shoulders mean a comfortable and practical bass to play. No knocked-off corners! This bass is a favourite with discerning schools and teachers.

Double Take?

Double Take basses are simply a good hybrid model which has been carefully antiqued by hand and refinished in our workshop to give them the mojo of an instrument 100 years older ...

The one shown in the pictures is indicative only, as every one is of course slightly different in the degree of mojo and character.
