The consignment ca. 1924 Hawkes Panormo model (serial number 924) is in very clean and original condition. It responds with a profoundly powerful orchestral voice and an even tonal balance in all registers. Mild to medium flame figured maple back, sides, and neck. Even grain spruce top with a fairly low arch for a powerful bottom end. The individual french style tuners remain in fine condition and work smoothly. Ebony fittings and carbon graphite endpin. French bridge with added adjusters. Gorgeous red-orange oil varnish finish. Dimensions are: Top length 43 5/8″, Upper bout width 22 1/4″, Middle bout width 15 1/2″, Lower bout width 26 1/2″, Depth at tail 9″, Depth at upper bout corner 9″, Depth at neck 6 5/8″, String length 42 1/2″. This beautiful bass has a profoundly large and complex voice in an orchestral setting. Very much a professional level instrument. With cover.
