So there's no replacing a true acoustic double bass... but I'm trying anyhow. I've come to regard my EUB as about as useful as boobies on a bull for recreating an acoustic tone (for jazz), whats new :scowl:? I hear flats on a semi-acoustic, lightwave equipped bass g****r (Zon, F bass) come pretty close, dont suppose anyones tried one of these babies? Are there any other good basses for recreating a DB tone? While we're on the topic has anyone tried an acoustic bass g****r equipped with a Schertler Blue Stick pickup? ...ummm think that's about it. Thanks in advance.
