Hey everybody, I've been playing my Azola bugbass for a while now, and still consider myself more of an electric bassist, but I'm now interested in buying a real acoustic upright bass to get the great sound of the real deal. I've heard great reviews of the fully carved Bulgarian basses available through Gollihur music as well as basses such as the Cleveland. I'd like to keep the price in the $2000 ballpark, but since $2k is no small chunk of change, I want to choose carefully and would even consider waiting and dropping $4K for a good bass if the choice seems appropriate. I play a lot of jazz and also play country, pop and other styles live and in the studio. I play only pizz at this point, but want to learn arco. I have also been doing a few sessions here and there on upright and want something that can record well. For my session work now, I rent a carved bass for $100/day, but that cuts into my earnings so owning my own bass would help. I look at this purchase as a one-time long-term purchase and would expect selling to upgrade to be a difficult process and therefore want to get the right one from the get-go. I'm in Nashville and climate is humid, although drier than some areas. Thanks for any help you can offer.
