John Lott

English Double Bass

This is my main instrument which I use for everything from orchestral playing to Jazz and solos. I'm currently using PIRASTRO Permanent strings. This bass was previously owned by Keith Marjoram and then by Corin Long. I have been unable to trace it back any further.

Paul Claudot

French Double Bass

This is my second instrument which I mainly use for practice but it is also a lovely Double Bass. It was the first Bass I used professionally. Until recently the maker of this bass was unknown but master luthier Jeroen Bruynooghe found a label attributing the instrument to Paul Claudot. It was previously owned by my Great Aunt Elsie Ford who played in the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the time of Eugene Cruft. I currently use either PIRASTRO Permenant or Perpetual strings on this instrument

Pirastro Strings

As a member of the Double Bass section of the London Philharmonic Orchestra we are proud to exclusively play PIRASTRO strings. 

I mainly use a full set of Permanent strings. I find they can keep the deep resonance and low frequencies of the instrument as well as bringing out the higher registers clearly for solo playing.

Fender Jazz V Basses

These are both 2010 Fender American Deluxe J-Bass. I have customised the first of which with Seymour Duncan pickups. I use Elixir Stainless steel strings on both these basses

Reid Hudson Bow

This bow was previously owned by Mary Scully. I tend to use this bow for solos rather than loud orchestral playing.
