Hi folks! I'm new to TB and this is officially my first post. After ~16 years of not playing and close to two decades of looking for the right example, I just became the proud owner of a '65 Ampeg BB4. The instrument is in phenomenal shape, but obviously it's not without some wear tear, given its age. I would like to replace the endpin's tip - the pin functions/holds perfectly but the tip itself seems to have been fixed in place with tape to prevent it from falling off. Any recommendations as to where I can get a replacement tip and/or new endpin + tip for my bass? I also need a new set of strings. After reading through some treads on this forum, it appears that the Spiro Solo's are a popular choice for the Ampeg BB4. I am considering, however, a set of La Bella nylon strings; based on reviews, they are a good choice for pizz/latin music. Does anyone have any experience with La Bella nylon strings and are they worth the consideration? I'm also open to any other suggestions that would yield mild-to-low string tension and full-bodied sound. Lastly, I'm looking for a stand for the bass, as I'd rather keep it on display than stored away in its bag. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance, and I look forward to learning much, as well as hopefully contributing to this community!
