I'm coming up on my 1 year mark of playing the double bass and while I can understand those who left electric behind in favour of focusing on DB, I'm curious as to the motivations of those who started on DB and have no interest whatsoever in at least garnering some proficiency on slab. It seems to me that it wouldn't really require a lot of investment time-wise, or even monetarily. Hell, the reason I bought Obligatos instead of Animas is because I could finish paying off my new professional quality BG for the same cost as the Velvets. While some guys (Ed) don't use an amp that much, I mean, we ALL have one, right? So...why? Is it just a complete and total lack of interest?
