Today we chat with double bass maker Nick Lloyd about the story behind his bench copy of Edgar Meyer’s Giovanni Battista Gabrielli from 1769.  Nick copied Edgar’s bass (#55) for Paul Kowert, and the Meyer bass copy that he bright to ISB (#60) was played by Gary Karr during the ISB headliner concert with Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten.


Enjoy, and be sure to check out more of Nick’s great work on his website, Facebook, and Instagram!
