1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please make yourself at home! I've deleted the previous "migration" threads, please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    I'm still playing my first upright, a carved top 2001 Christopher DB303T. It's not bad at all as far as CCBs go! lol The only downsides are how the arco sound thins outs a bit as you head up the G string and how it has wolf tones on damn near every note on the fingerboard. haha. I'm ready for an upgrade, but this bass and I have come a long way together.

    I don't think Christophers are considered CCB's.

    I always wondered what the public opinion was.

    hmm, how about ECB = Excellent Chinese bass?

    all kidding aside, the Shens that I've seen are quite nice and the Christophers seem like a very good value.

    btw, only recently did I find out that my Chinese bass was made (or distributed) by the Dual Joy Musical Instrument Co. in Beijing.

    My Christopher is definitely NOT a ccb. I think I might have been one of the first around here to buy one. It's a great bass, and I've done two CDs with it - including one with Gordon Goodwin.

    I'm in the process of selling my DB401 Carved Flatback. The lower end Christophers(Academy, Concert, Hybrid) are very good basses for the money IMO.
