    You'll need more than that to get a properly-set up instrument.

    There are more like you. Check out the threads below for newbie advice.

    What's the real question here? Do you mean what DB's are made of?
    There are loads of threads here on buying a bass which include what to look for, price ranges, etc... If you want to get educated go to (All Hail) Bob Gollihur's links page www.gollihur.com and spend about three weeks reading everything you can. Oh, and go ahead and start looking for a DB teacher who not only can teach you how to play this very different instrument but can probably help you find an instrument and answer your questions directly.

    If you have some more specific questions for the folks here fire away.

    In the Toledo area -- my home town -- get a hold of either Jeff Halsey, head of the Jazz Dept. at BGSU and a bass player, Rick Luettke, local bass player, or Gene Parker who is my father. They can help you get pointed in the right direction around there.
