    Hello, do you have any sound clips?

    I don't have any of me playing it, but on the Ergo site there are some here:
    http://www.planadmin.us/ergo/?q=node/7

    The clips there are fairly representative of the sound, but the sound is kind of dependent on the preamp and amp you're using. I had been using the Fishman Pro EQ III http://www.gollihurmusic.com/product/1205-FISHMAN_PRO_EQ_II_PREAMP.html
    and found I got a sound I liked more than what's in those samples.

    The sound also changes with bridge height. On the makers suggestion, I raised the bridge for a time with small pieces of maple and the slightly raised action made the instrument sound more like a DB. I've since gone back to stock.

    In any case, it's been very good in situations where a loud band requires high levels of amplification without feedback.

    Hope that helps.

    Stand included in price. Sorry, not shipping this instrument out of North America. It's just not worth the hassle. Sorry.

    No problem about that. If we agree you can ship it to Dallas. Could you tell me about condition of the instrument? Is it overused? What is condition of the fretboard? Action? Finish? You can reply to my mail miomao788@yahoo.com
    Would you consider 450+shipping?

    PM replied. Condition is like new. No signs of use at all on the fingerboard or anywhere else. Action is low for an upright. Electric bass players find the action to be comfortable. I've lowered price twice and the bass is like new, so I am now firm at $500.
    Thanks

    Free bump for a GREAT EUB. I love my ergo to death.

    If I had the resources right now I'd grab this off you since I've been dying lately for a 5.
