violin maker Gyula Mogyorossy worked at the beginning of 20th century in Budapest, Hungary. Was one of the biggest instrument collectors of the time. There are speculations if he really was a luthier, but according to many luthiers, he never built instruments (at least not double basses), he only collected them from hungarian luthiers. Nevertheless, he had a pretty bad habit to engrave his own name on every instrument he led his hands on. As a consequence, there are lot of double basses wearing his signature (rarely in original state), although the quality of "his" double basses is very good; I personally saw a couple of very nice sounded ones, they had very fine and rich tone. Gamba-form (because of hight of upper shoulders pretty uncomfortable to play in mid position without a customised neck), E-flat neck, varnish usually in dark red or dark brown colour.

Hope this could help..

"Hope this could help..."

Of course! Thank you for your information which was obviously not possible to get anywhere.

Kindest regards

Hello gkostic, I own a Mogyorossy tarogato. Is it the same story and part of his collection on which he put his stamp? It is a very beautiful (although also very basic) instrument, made of beautiful wood (cocobolo?). What is the source of your history of Mogyorossy? I would like using it on my webpage Kind regards, Henk Jansen
