Question regarding body sizes
I'm about 5'11" and currently play a Shen Rogeri Willow. It's a pretty good bass for my skill level, but I've noticed that I sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable reaching into the upper registers with it as compared to my SB100. I know the SB100 has a 44" body length and smaller ribs while the Rogeri is 45" with deep ribs. I can reach the upper notes better on the SB100 and while I plan to keep it as a pizz bass, I'm wondering if I should either find a way to adapt to the Rogeri or find a smaller bodied bass that would still do well in a community orchestra.
