Hello Talkbass, brand new user here. I have read this forum every now and then for bass questions and there's a lot of good info here. I'm very interested in EUBs and playing one, due to their general portability, price point, the construction, and the different musical applications for them. However, after reading several threads on EUBs, searching youtube for EUBs and EUB players, and playing on a Yamaha Silent Bass myself, I can't help but think that they can never really compare to a DB, and I feel a lot of the DB players here would agree with me when I say that. Now, before we jump to any conclusions about BG players and DB players, I play both BG and DB, a Squier Fretless and an old Kay, respectively, and I love the sound of both of them. However, the Kay is a school-owned instrument (I play in college jazz ensembles) and I know that I will part with it eventually, so I was looking for a good replacement. I will be using it for every style of music, including jazz, rock, and sampling and recording it for EDM. I know that there's also the argument that DBs sound like EUBs when amplified anyway, especially in a larger ensemble or venue setting, when you must play amplified, but again, I'm sure there's also the counter argument about what type of pickups you're using and the amp. I also know than when amping an acoustic instrument in general, you must consider that the the sound has two origin points, and consider the volume you are producing with the instrument and using the "amp" to "amplify" your sound. I can get a good pizzicato DB sound out of a DB, and I wish to keep that. In a studio setting, a well miked DB will sound nothing short of "sexy," for lack of a better word. I have recorded with my Kay in a combo setting (unamplified, mic only) and I like the sound I get from it. Here's my question: TL;DR, I really love the sound of the DB that I'm using, but I really want to use an EUB for the sake of an EUB and what it can do. However, I'm afraid that I'll never be satisfied with it. Should I just consider buying a DB, or should I wait a while for technology to catch up or try a few more EUBs?
