Hi all - I'm satisfied the sound of my current bass, a 5/8ths size Heinrich Roth. But recently several respected bassists have pointed out to me that the instrument is "too small" for me. I have also played a few of their basses and been knocked out by the sheer amount of sound they put out (in comparison to my Roth). A few months ago I raised my action up very high to compensate, but it just isn't the same as the basses these people had. So basically I've come to the realization that at some point in the future, I might want to purchase a "good" bass. I've read a lot about how to select a bass (David Gage's recent article in Bass Player was illuminating). But I know next to nothing about the amount of /money/ involved in purchasing a "good" DB. What are the price ranges like? If I'm going to start saving money, what should my goal be like? Your stories of success and woe would be much appreciated!
