Hi All! For some bizarre reason, I have myself convinced that I want to learn to play the Dog-House. I haven't mastered the bass guitar, but twice a year I go to Bluegrass fests and I would like to bring a bass. This looks like it would be easy to travel with, folding-bass Do you think it would be loud enough to be able to play with a guitar, mandolin, banjo, etc in an outdoor unplugged event? There's a Chadwick 3/4 sized for 3 times the money. would I be better off with the pricier instrument? Will it be louder? Better sounding/playing? Better resale value? Let me know what you think?
