i know there are many threads are about this, but i have a question... i play bassguitar for 6/7 years now, and i want to play double bass.. i'm a student and i have to eat also... so i'm thinking about buying the cheapest double bass, to learn it (and take some lessons also) ( if i buy a more expensive bass, i cannot afford lessons...) so here is my question. I can buy this bass, with bow and cover for 449 euros.. thats about 550/600 USdollars i guess. can i buy this one, just to practice a lot, and take lessons, and buy a better one if i have a job etc. and sell this one... or is this bass just some wooden box with 4 strings, that doesn't even play/sound like a bass... ? for example, i have a fender jazz bass, i can image that i can still learn the bassguitar skills on a cheap-ass jazzbass like this one for 200 euro's can i also learn to play double bass on the double bass in the picture?
