Jean Auray Luthier - Double basses

Français [fr]


My designs emerge from combining the structural qualities and fine balance of French instruments with the elegant style of the Italian.

Models adapted to each player

I make each double bass to order according to the needs and sensibility of the musician.

I offer a range of different sizes and shapes in my own style. All my master craftsman basses can be built with a removable neck.

Whatever the shape, size or style a musician chooses, I can guarantee an instrument with the sound qualities I have obtained through my research : clear and round, well defined, balanced, easy to play with a bow.
