Strurnal 50/1 bass?
I'm new to double bass and I've been looking to buy one, I found this strunal 50/1
Is there anyone that could give me information on this bass, and would it be a good idea to buy it?
I had a 50/4, which is the next bass up the line. It had an ebony fingerboard, which the 50/1 does not have, and which you will want. A 50/4 with a decent replacement endpin and a good setup should serve you very well.
If you have the option, buy from a local luthier. The after-sale service should be worlds better than buying from a mail-order outfit. A good relationship with a local luthier is invaluable when stupid little problems come up, which they always seem to do.
As for the bass to which you linked, the wisest move is to buy a bass from a real bass shop with real luthiers and not from a mass-merchant or guitar store. You'll find that advice within the wiki.
my bass is an old strunal very similar to the 50/1, upgraded with a new real ebony fingerboard, tuning gear and bridge.
it sounds good to me, not the most amazing tone on earth for sure, but an honest one if properly setup. best thing of this bass, it's very well built ,strong and sturdy, a good smack-it-around instrument, no problems with weather, climate changings or drunk people at the bar where you're playing.
