We rent and sell new, nearly new, and used Gliga brand Double Basses. Our stock is always in flux and we often have used basses in stock. Our in-house Luthier Ian sets up every instrument new or used before it is put out on the floor. We spare no effort to improve the fingerboard of each bass to remove buzzing and other issues. We use only quality strings and tailpieces.
Prussin Music is excited to have highly customized Moar Instruments available in Double Bass. The time involved in making these instruments is very extensive so there will only be one or two of these available in a year.

Occasionally we purchase other brands of used basses for stock if the instruments meet our quality standards. We also get bass rental returns in periodically. If you are interested in a used double bass, please phone, email us, or visit us to check availability. If we are out of used stock, we can your name to a wish list for this type of instrument. When we get one in that matches what you are looking for, we will then contact you first before putting it out for sale to the public.
