I was in the city the other day, and came upon a handsome looking upright, I didnt pick it up unfortunately, but it looked like it was in great shape. It was a Cremona brand, looked to be 3/4, and was $1600. I have never really played DB, but am very interested. I havent been able to find any shops or anything that rent, and I have called around. Long-mcwaude does, but I really dont want to deal with them. They have Schoenbachs basses for 69 a month. I have a job and such, but I'm 15, so it's just at a Boston Pizza, currently washing dishes. I'm not really made of money yet... lol So really, I dont know what to decide. To either now, trade in my bass and money and buy the upright, or sell my bass, buy a nice one to replace, and leave double for awhile. Any thoughts or opinions on anything I've said?
