Sorry if wrong forum, but I figured double bass players might know better than bass guitar players about this. I play bass guitar, and am currently trying to learn the viola as a stepping stone to the cello and ultimately double bass. I have a borrowed viola, but know nothing about cello brands and what might be decent for a very low price. I want something that will have the best possible sound for the least $$, preferably under $400. I want something that I could get my money out of if I find that it's not my cup of tea. Are there any low end student models out there, or on ebay that are worth purchasing?
