I am an electric bass player, looking to dabble into the upright. Any ideas on a cheap student bass...It wont have to be like the best, just good enough to sit in my room and be played on. I just want it to practice on, and if i can do it, and like it, i will persue a better made bass. One more thing....are there any differences between the basses you finger and use a bow on? i dont know why, but i always thought there was.
