I've been saving up money for an upright bass, right now I have $750 dollars. I was wondering if the Engelhardt EC1 ( http://www.music123.com/Engelhardt-EC1-Concert-Model-Bass-i52638.music?affil=11022004GG ) is a good bass to start. And what are the differences between the EC1 and EM1? Any other suggestions? By the way I already checked the newbie links. thanks.
