This new Shen SB 200 Maple Mirecourt model (2018-2-24) was recently featured at the Anaheim NAMM show. The more pear shaped configuration is roughly 7/8 size in the lower bout and 3/4 size in the middle and upper bouts with steeply sloping shoulders. The Spruce top has fine grain at the center and medium grain at the edges. The lovely Maple back and sides show prominent ray fleck figure. The Maple neck is fitted with the medium grade brass single unit tuning machines. The nut, fingerboard, and tailpiece saddle are ebony. The replacement German Maple bridge has been fitted with adjusters. The replacement ebony Hill style tailpiece was also made in Germany. The replacement New Harmony endpin has a solid graphite 10 mm pin. The red-orange oil varnish finish is especially beautiful in natural light. This bass has been strung with Pirastro Evah Pirazzi orchestra gauge strings for a very strong voice in an orchestral setting. DIMENSIONS are: Top length 43″, Upper bout width 20″, Middle bout width 14 1/2″, Lower bout width 27 1/2″, Depth at tail 9 1/4″, Depth t upper bout bend 8 7/8″, Depth at neck 7″, String length 41 1/2″. This bass will make a fine conservatory or community orchestra instrument. With cover.
