Hey guys.... here's what I've got. Same as it's been for a long time, I've been curious about putting a foot into the world of double bass, and at this point I enjoy poking around the internet since I'm currently trying to save up enough money for my first DB. However, each time I'm on e-Bay having a look around, I see numerous double basses for $395. What is the deal with that? I mean this isn't just the bass itself, these people usually throw in a bow, an extra set of strings, and a bag. I haven't even remotely considered looking into picking one of these things up, so it's not like I'm hot on buying one. Just wanting to know if anyone knows what the deal is with these things, because there sure are a lot of them!!
