Wujang Sun Yu
offered for sale by Bruce Sexauer at thestringbass.com
My recent trip to the Shanghai Musicmesse trade show was an eye opener. There are quite a few bass makers in China hat have little of no representation in the US, and one stood out for me as having great instruments without an inflated price tag. I bought two examples of their work directly off the trade show floor,  then imported them directly. They have the same outward dimensions, but one it made from ordinary high quality materials, while the other is simply spectacular. Both sound similar, and their sound is full and growly, plenty of volume, with really excellent response.  While both have very nice tuners, ebony, and other appointments, the 300 is in every way a cut above the 200 except possibly the sound and playability, but you'll have to be the judge of that. The YU-300 is pictured here: $7200 incuding a Bag.
