  1. I would like to have a double bass. I never played on one. But i think ill need it for a few songs on stage and in the studio. Any double bass which is from good value? I live in the Netherlands(Europe).
    Thanks in advance!

    I've dealt with a great guy in Amsterdam that sells and services upright basses. He is in De Jordaan neighborhood. Lucas Suringar is his name. Go to this link:


    Then scroll down to NETHERLANDS. You can get his phone number/email information there. Tell him "hello" for me.

    I don’t know where you live, but check out http://www.knooren.com/ He’s a great luthier in Schimmert (Limburg), and that is where I got my bass. and I actually bought a new bow from him this week. If you live a little further south it might be a lot closer. address and phone number are on the website.

    Good Luck. :)
