Yup - but the questioner has not specified a stringed instrument. Some idea of the shape would have been VERY helpful, don't you think?

Without some idea of the shape, your instrument could be almost anything. Ten foot tall tends to suggest a Bassoon and with a point at the bottom, you are talking about a Contrabassoon. The deepest sounding instrument in the woodwind section. It resembles a bunch of pipes joined together. A string double bass also is balanced on a point, but that is distinctively a giant violin shape. Ask Mr Google to show you "Images" for a contrabassoon - that should sort you out fairly quickly.
