| | WTB Entry-Level Bass/Upton (>$2000, CNJ/NY)
I am seeking to purchase a double bass to begin study in the central NJ region.
This will be my first upright. My budget is >$2000 (prefer to stay around $1500, 2000 is quite a stretch for me). Within this price range I hope to acquire an abundantly adequate instrument with pleasant sound - crossing my fingers for an Upton - something that will keep me contented throughout the next few years of school. I would prefer this be a used instrument.
Round-back construction only, please, as I will be playing primarily jazz/pizzicato.
Willing to travel up to ~150 miles. The sooner I find the right instrument, the sooner I can begin my bass journey.
Thanks for reading.

Reason: doing more research; willing to spend more for Upton quality.
