Overview

In the Classical era, the kind of double bass used in Vienna — it had frets and five strings, tuned F, A, D, F#, A — was one Joseph Sperger had developed for his own use. This unique instrument, a kind of hybrid of the current contrabass and the viola da gamba, allowed for virtuoso technique and produced a sound that was perfectly adapted for chamber music. It quickly became all the rage in the Viennese salons.
