Ken Smith is on a distinguished road
Arrow Grand Lott model, anno 2010 (IN STOCK)

This is a grand pattern inspired by JF Lott, known the King of English Double Bass makers of the 19th century. This Bass is very impressive in its dimensions, sound and overall beauty. To make a Bass of this size with a 41" string length is in itself an accomplishment. A Bass that looks and sounds this good will not go unnoticed in any venue from a Jazz duo to a full Orchestra Bass section or anything in between. It is even fairly comfortable for solo work.

Here are some pics and measurements of the Grand Lott model

String Length; 41"
Top/Back Length; 45 1/8" top, 45 1/4" back
Upper Bout; 21 7/8"
Middle Bout; 15 1/8"
Lower Bout; 28 5/8"
Ribs; 9 1/2"-9 3/8" tapering to 7 1/4" at the neck.

Price is $15,000. USD. (lowered from $22k)
