Hi all! New to Talk Bass, played for years, glad to be on a forum for bassists! Does anyone have experience with Boulder Creek acoustic basses? Want I g to purchase a new ABG that will have enough volume(subjective,I know) to compete acoustically with one stone bridge acoustic guitar. Have a few chepos (Dean, Fender, a cheap Tennessee double neck 4/6). The Dean is not that bad, but have to play with a high action and really dig in with fingers to get a decent tone happening. My old Fender BG-29 is all but useless unplugged except for solo practice, but I love the short scale. There are only a handful of videos on Boulder Creeks that I can find. Bass player mag had one for review a couple years ago and said that it had good volume(for what it is) and a surprising g amount of low end. Now I know no ABG is going to have real serious low end, due to the body size. And I really want to keep the overall cost around 800 with bass and case. So that rules out finding a Guild b-30/b-50, Tacoma, Martin. If I wanted to blow a big chunk I wld buy a Rigel ABG. So the o my ones that are feasable for me IMHO are a Boulder Creek or a Breed love solo 350. I prefer a fretted, but if a fretless popped up and I loved the sound I might be game. so my question is does ANYONE have experience with a Boulder Creek or Breedlove acoustics? Can't judge a lot of virus for overall tone, and I live in Toledo Ohio and there are just no shops local that carry Boulder Creek. gui**** center says they can get me a breed love. I wld like to be able to play both in person before buying one. Been disappointed to many time by impulse buys. Thanks for any info!
