Double Bass by Jan Uldaricus Eberle
Catalog 72. Violone (double bass) with 4 strings – Johannes Udalricus Eberle – 1750
This violone has been often played by Hector Castillo,
Martin Hoflinger, a member of the Orpheon Consort,
But sometimes, other musicians cannot resist the temptation to try their hands at it!
Like here, at the exhibition in Tenerife.
Here a similar instrument, although quite a bit smaller than the Eberle,
performing the basso continuo of a cantata together with a small number of string instruments.
