The team at The English Double Bass is busy working away to complete the sections for each of the 40 makers featured in the book. With Kennedy alone over more than 30 pages and John Lott Senior at 34, this comprehensive tome is set to become the definitive reference work on the English double bass makers of the 18th and 19th Centuries.

We have been delighted to receive so many positive comments from our Patrons who have already received sample pages from our work through the post, so we thought we would share the sample digitally too.

You can’t see the high-quality paper stock and exceptional reproduction on a computer screen, of course, but we would be pleased to send out our few remaining samples to prospective book Patrons (subject to availability).

Please take a moment to examine the eight pages below – and you can also visit our website by clicking the link here to make it larger.
