I was just curious if there are any bassists who double on cello. Our church music director approached me about the possibilities of doubling. I could get a lot more wedding-type work, and the cello would stand out over the pipe organ properly, which my doublebass does not do, even with a microphone. So how feasible is this? My first thought would be to string a cello up in fourths, as a piccolo bass, but I cannot find the right strings. I wouldn't be seen that much (choir loft) so I could make markings on the fingerboard until I learn the intervals/intonation. Would I be able to use my same German bow? I know it's unorthodox, but it's what my hand can play comfortably. Lastly, what's the cheapest way to get into this?
