So, as I've been an electric player for over 20 years, I've decided I want to learn how to play upright bass. Where I live, there is quite a demand for upright players in many genres; after a few years of people asking me if I played upright, and disappointed when I answered negatively, I've decided that adding these skills would make me a better all around player anyway. As much as I know about electric instruments, I know absolutely nothing of value in terms of looking for a well-made starter upright, brands, pricing - nothing. I've been connected with an amazing local teacher, who is a ridiculously talented player in his own right, and I know he'll have recommendations for me; that said, the TB community has always been supportive and helpful for me, so I wanted to see if you all had any direction for me to begin my research. I'm completely open to any suggestions or ideas you might have. Preemptive strike, I will most likely rent for a few months while I research; I figure that'll be a better way to begin anyway. Thanks in advance for any ideas you might have.
