Hi guys, first of all, please don't rip on me for my lack of DB knowledge. I'm an electric bass player of 13 years, but don't know really squat about upright. I played one for about 2 years in high school though, so I know how, but that was about 8 years ago. Basically, I'm thinking about getting an upright and I've been looking around, mostly on eBay and whatever I can find on various web sites. I really like the look of the Engelhardt ES9, I think because of the 'blonde' look, but it seems to be a good quality bass, right? I noticed that some threads mention this maker but don't really give a lot of details. Does anyone out there have one of these and can offer a good review of it, and maybe compare it to others in it's price range? Anything would be helpful since I just don't know uprights the way I know electrics.
