Finally, I retrieved my DB from the medical clinic.

    Finally, after waiting almost 3 weeks, I got my DB. David Desbois (Montreal) did a great setup on my Strunal 50/1. New adjustable bridge, soundpost check up, fingerboard planed/reshaped, lowered nut and new Heliocore hybrid medium for a low and soft action. I lost a bit of sound volume (the strings?), but I gain a much better tone. Cost : 800$ CDN. I had already bought the string set.
    Total cost for this used DB : 2,500$ CDN with setup, soft case, support, bow, Fishman pickup and Fishman preamp. Not bad at all. Just the bass before setup and excluding accessories cost me about 600$ CDN.
    Happy "bassing" to all.

    Has it still got the super-fancy coathanger-wire tailgut, or did they use something nicer on yours? (AFAIK Lidl and Strunal are from the same factory, possibly at different times, and the one I play is also a 50/1)
