This website has been long overdue an update not least because since musicians were able to start returning to work last year I have had a surprising amount of interest in basses and bows and a pleasing amount of sales to some happy customers.

If you are familiar with DoubleBasses.Co.Uk you may see that there are fewer instruments for sale as a result but there are more on the way, though I cannot say exactly when. Restorations take time.

Please enjoy looking at the archive pages if you simply like to broaden your knowledge of double basses. I try to be as accurate and honest as I can with the descriptions.

My name is Kenneth Knussen. I am a professional double bass player and, for 40 years, have played in orchestras throughout the United Kingdom.


The basses under the INSTRUMENTS FOR SALE heading are mostly owned by players, active or retired and are currently available. This is in contrast to the majority of sites that are offering instruments owned by dealers. Once an instrument is sold it will be moved into the INSTRUMENT ARCHIVE sections.
