    Hi all,
    The local middle school (aka Junior High) that my kids attend is in need of an additional upright (double?) bass for the 5 various bands to share - they currently have only one.
    I am considering purchasing one to donate, but wonder if I could trouble y'all for some input?
    - What is an appropriate upright bass for use by a host of Middle School bands (5th and 6th grade development bands, 7th and 8th grade bands and a "swing" band)?
    - Expected cost for a suitable, fit-for-purpose bass?
    - Brands/models to steer clear of?

    I'm in the Seattle, WA area. Would be interested in sources close to this area since I can only imagine that shipping one of these beasts would be costly.

    Thanks very much, Dean
