Im after an Acoustic Bass What can you Recommend??
theres a whole bunch of threads on this. but everyone reccomends the Tacoma Thunderchief or an Olympia. I play my friends olympia and it sounds pretty good.
Michael Kelly = Good
Rob Allen seems also highly recomended.
I just got my Tacoma a week ago, its plays excellently and it sounds superb. I get to test it in a battle situation this weekend (i get to go up against 3 acoustic guitars i think and some congas, its gonna be an adventure). I tell ya how it goes.
I have the Tacoma/Olympia and it sounds really good. I put Labella black nylon tapewounds on it and it sounds even better. The only downside is the Fishman electronics, but it was $300 new without a case so I really can't complain.
if you go with the Tacoma you can get it with LR Baggs electronics which sound a lot better.
If you plan to play unplugged and cut through the mix, check out the Dean Performer. I take mine camping and jam around the campfire. It's loud and bulletproof. Inexpensive too.
