Doubling up

Discussion in 'Basses [DB]' started by Jacoproud, Jan 20, 2002.


  1. Ever since i started playing bass i have always had an interest in playing the double bass also and have took every chance i have had to play one. now that my 21st birthday is fast approaching and i am about to become a man ;) my parents are going to buy me a double bass.

    I would just like some information on buying a double bass suitable for a beginner/intermediate (as i intend to become upto intermediate standard on this bass). I obviously have some knowledge of them but i would like to know more about the woods used in DBs and which ones are of a higher quality than others. Also what problems to look out for when buying a used DB and some general information.

    If anyone could provide links, direct advice or a emails to jonathan@theproud.freeserve.co.uk i would be sincerely grateful.
