English double basses for the professional player



Adrian Vickers has been making and repairing double basses since 1997 when he repaired his first instrument under the instruction of John Bedingfield. Since then he has copied and adapted several double bass outlines from old master instruments. He addresses the needs of the professional player and sees playability and quality of tone as paramount. Adrian also uses the finest available materials and has a passion for the artistic interpretation of work by the old masters. These methods combine to give the modern player instruments of the highest quality.

Adrian's instruments are played in several London orchestras and have been received with great acclaim.
