INTERNATIONAL

GROUP, INC.


Christopher® string instruments have established high

recognition from schools, musicians, shops and music

stores in the United States and worldwide.

In the Christopher® workshops, only high quality and

carefully seasoned tonewoods are used. Significant investments

in quality woods, aged in a controlled environment

in our own manufacturing plant, has been made.

The expertise in woodworking allows Concord® to create

and form our own veneers, in order to guarantee a consistent

high quality of the instruments.

Our Academy and Concert series instruments have a

unique graduation on the arch for easy sound production

and warm tone. They are professionally finished and

adjusted to Christopher® workshop standards.

PORTABLE INSTR.

CHRISTOPHER® R EMOVABLE NECK MODEL

Traveling with the bass is always a challenge. It is getting more restricted

and expensive especially traveling by air. To make traveling with the bass

easier, Concord has developed a double bass with a removable neck. As the

maker of the Eminence bass, Concord is very experienced in making portable

basses. Because of the steel dovetail joint, the neck can be removed

and assembled within just a few minutes.


Available as gamba or violin model, 3/4 size

Laminated spruce top, laminated flamed maple back

and sides






Adjustable bridge

Fastened ebony tailpiece

Ebony fingerboard

Rubner machine heads – Tyrolean style

Concord Deluxe endpin

EMINENCE® ELECTRIC UPRIGHT BASS

The Eminence bass has an arched top and bottom, a bass bar and a soundpost

- the same structural design as a standard-size double bass. The unamplified

sound of the Eminence is great for practising in the hotel room

or if you have sensitive neighbors. Played amplified, the Eminence with its

acoustic body sounds like a larger acoustic double bass. The string length

of 105 cm / 41-1/4“ and a standard-size neck deliver a familiar playing feel

and an easy transition from standard-size double bass to portable upright

bass.

The Eminence bass is also available with a removable neck option (Eminence

RN models). It just takes a few minutes to assemble or disassemble

the Eminence RN. A steel dovetail joint guarantees a resistant and durable

fit. An additional sturdy flight case with wheels is also available.

Models:





E-DB – Eminence Standard mode)

E-DB-RN – Eminence removable neck model

E-DB5 – Eminence Standard model 5 strings

The softcase for the Christopher RN can be used for both the assembled

and disassmbled bass. The overall dimension of this package

even a bike trailer easily. An optional flight hard case is also available

for the Christopher® RN. The dimensions of the flight hard

case are L 55‘‘ x W 32‘‘ x H 22‘‘; the total weight, including instrument,
