Welcome to the DoubleBassBuyer.com. We buy, sell and repair American made plywood laminate double basses also known as an upright bass. I'm a Luthier and musician working in a vintage guitar shop and I love buying, selling and repairing vintage double basses. I appreciate the fine craftsmanship, charm and unique tone a double bass offers. If you live in Chicagoland and you're selling your Kay, Engelhardt or other American made laminate Double Bass please contact me about buying it. I am looking for popular American brands in all conditions. I particularly like Kay, American Standard and Engelhardt as well as Ampeg Epiphone Upright Electrics. Please note I do not buy German flat back and carved back basses and you will need to bring your bass into my shop. Have a look around our site for information on how we can buy your American built upright bass.
If you need repairs on your laminate upright bass and live in Chicago please give me a shout to discuss your needs. I have repaired countless American laminate basses and have even built basses from scratch and would be happy to assess your bass.
