double bass is attributed to the Leeds maker William Booth. As you can see
from the photograph it is a flat baked viol shaped bass with a dark oil
based varnish. It is really very easy sounding and very comfortable to
play being easier than it looks to get around. A beautiful carved scroll
with great English character.
Koos Serierse lives in Loosedrect in Holland and is thought to be one of the great Jazz players in Europe. He works for many fine Jazz groups and orchestras all over Europe, and has worked for many of the great players of the World. Apart from playing, Koos is renowned as a fine teacher and many of his pupils have bought instruments from us over the last twenty years. Koos has one son named Marcel Serierse who is attributed as one of the great kit drummers in Holland and Europe. It is really nice to know that Koos and son work very well together and can be bought on CD's. One disc that they have worked on together is "We Love Music".....Koos Serierse bass, Marcel Serierse drums and Hans Vroomans Piano. This is a wonderful CD, with almost all the music being composed by Koos. Gallery Strings is proud to know and sold him instruments.
