Oskar Kapplemeyer

I made this bass with Osakar Kapplemeyer in the Spring of 2018. We based it on the "Esterhazy Stadlmann" a famous bass made by Johann Joseph Stadlmann , Vienna for Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy circa 1750. we worked together, first in Frome then at Oskar`s workshop in Passau, Bavaria.

We copied the original label but with our details. It`s a small model with a large sound and received a Silver Medal at Bass Europe in Lucca, Italy in 2018.

It is owned by Jacke Stecewicz of the Bad Füssing orchestra.
