    I was browsing through the internet and found a double bass from a brand called Locato. I looked at the different brands in Newbie section but I couldn't find it.

    So. I wonder if anyone knows anything about the brand or the bass (it only said Locato 3/4). Any answers regarding the quality of the instrument/s would be appreciated.

    Regards,
    Solomyr.

    Does anyone else cringe every time the word 'brand' is used to describe a bass maker? I'd call myself a pedant, but the dictionary doesn't really back me up. I think it's more the connotation than the denotation.

    Yeah, I know what you mean but there are some basses where "brand" really applies! :)

  6. The fact that there seems to be little or no information on the name hints strongly that this could be a poor quality Chinese import. That's not definite but I would use great caution and would under no circumstances buy one online. If the price is under $1,000 (or the Swedish equivalent) I recommend closing your browser immediately.

    What that means is: put on your track shoes and run.
