    I recently joined talkbass and would like to introduce myself.
    I live in central europe and play mostly double bass in various bands that could be described as contemporary/jazz/improv, and I as I try to make a living from playing, I also play jobs (bar, brunch, etc.)
    In the last few months I also play bass guitar (yes-it is a guitar :bassist: ).
    Alltogether I´m playing 12 or 13 years, and I studied jazz-double bass in the conservatory for the last 5 years, I´m nearly finished.

    My stuff (in case you´re interested):
    Double Bass - ca. 100year old bohemian, maker unknown
    Bow (german) - Georg Hoyer (quite ok), Carbondix (cheap and ok)
    Pickup - AKG C411 (acutally a mic), old Shertler I don´t use anymore
    Bassguitar - 70ies Gibson Ripper
    Fx - Zvex Octane3, Zoom Ultra Fuzz, MXR 10Band Eq, Moogerfooger Ring Modulator
    Amp - SWR Workingman12

    I´m currently shopping for a better amp & cab. I don´t like the SWRs tone with my upright nor my gibson and it´s not loud enough.
    Any recommendations? Easy transport (=lightweight, small size) is after tone the most important thing for me! And I´m more into the head + cab concept at the moment.
