    Hello everybody !

    I live in a nice island in the Caribbean but where owning a double bass is a real challenge.

    I used to play a Stagg EDB which introduced me into the world of double bass. But, apart from the playing position, this stuff is not a double bass.

    Now, I'm planning to purchase an acoustic double bass. I read some threads about chinese ones, cheap basses etc, but I don't want to spend too much money out.

    Here is what I covet.

    Who knows it ?
    What do you think of it ?

    Thank you for your wise advice.
     
  2. Looks well made to me but I cant tell you much about it though

    This reminds me of that time I decided to get a vasectomy. I did some research, got a couple if opinions from friends and whatnot. Then, in the end, I just paid a homeless guy $30 to kick me in the balls for a half hour. It seemed to do the trick.

    I guess what I'm saying is, you should buy this bass right now.

    Do DB players have GAS? You have to have a pretty big house. I must admit that I though DB players were beyond that human frailty.
