The International Society of Bassists Musical Instrument Program

The Karr-Koussevitzky Bass

The Karr-Koussevitzky Bass was owned and played by 
ISB founder Gary Karr for 40 years. Just as he was gifted 
with the bass by Olga Koussevitzky, widow of Serge 
Koussevitzky, Gary Karr paid that historic gift forward by 
donating the Karr-Koussevitzky Bass to the ISB in 2004.

Since then, the bass has traveled the country, serving 
two-year residencies at major shops supporting the ISB. 
It is visited and played in these shops - by fans of Gary 
Karr and the ISB, and on the concert stage by ISB 

This world famous bass is now fully insured by The
