GASPARO
double basses

The southern Carpathians, the Transylvanian Carpathians, is home to the largest surface of virgin forests in Europe. The Carpathians not only provide the habitat for the largest European populations of brown bears, wolves, chamois and lynxes - the Carpathians are also the origin of the sought-after tonewood for making stringed instruments. 

Here in Transsylvania is where our Gasparo double basses are made by hand.

Testore Transsylvania

This beautiful model is a replica of an old Italian Testore bass, and besides it’s smooth sound, it features a slightly antiqued golden varnish, that doesn't hide the beauty of the tonewood.

Gasparo da Salò

Gasparo basses are named after Gasparo da Salò (or Gasparo Bertolotti; * May 20., 1540 in Salò; † April 14., 1609 in Brescia). He was a Italian violin maker and double bassist. Today, he is considered as founder of the Brescian school of violin making and the Stradivarius of the double bass.
