      Mr. Valenzo:
      If it is ok to ask, where are you located? I think a competent bass luthier could adjust your custom bass to produce more sound.

      I am too far away to offer any help, but I suspect it could be improved.

      I make very powerful five-string fiddles, but the five-string bass I built last summer did not have as big a voice as I hoped.

      Hope you find what you want.

    Current Setup:
    New wide shouldered fully carved 4/4 custom made personalized upright bass. I mostly play without any amplification in a "strolling" style. I'm so dissapointed with the sound of this upright bass that out of feeling decieved I bought a shadow pickup to use with a older Acoustic B200 combo amp I has at home in order to "mask" the sound. What a rude awakening.
    Favorite Genres:
    Country, bluegrass, folk music.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Strolling gigs.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    3/4 laminated upright bass with no amplification used.
    G.A.S. List:
    The one that gives me the most original, purest, woody, and acoustic sound possible to practice at home. (You guys tell me which does)
    Influences and Teachers:
    The bluegrass upright bass players.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Lifting weights!
    Without any amplification I'm very dissapointed the way my big brand new 4/4 fully carved personalized upright bass sounds! Before construction I specifically told the luthier "pretend you are in a contest to make the world's most boomiest and thumpiest sounding upright bass." I even told him that I was willing to sacrifice my own commodity and get a bigger than the standard 3/4 sized bass just to ensure I would get this type of sound I so much desired! (After this constant insistance I had very high hopes I would be satisfied) Well it turned out that it doesn't "boom" at all! My old ugly and smaller 3/4 laminated upright bass booms more! I'm very pissed off! I should of just went to stores with many upright basses and tried them out and picked the boomiest sounding one!
