Is there a difference in Simandl etudes by publisher?

  1. My local music store and the university library don't have any copies of 30 Etudes/Studies for Double/String bass.

    Does anybody know if there's a difference between the editions published by Carl Fischer, Alfred Music, International Music Company, or Kalmus?

    There's probably not any difference except for the editor's fingering suggestions. I would buy the least expensive edition if you have a choice.
  3. Every edition I've seen on sheetmusicplus costs $10.95, with the exception of IMC's mysterious book "30 Studies for the Development of Tone."

    At first I thought this was a different book, but I don't think IMC would be the only one to have a print of some book. lemurmusic has something printed by them but under a different title:
  4. I ordered the so-called "German" edition of Simandl's Book 1, and they sent me the English-Japanese version anyway. But as it appears that all the page numbers are the same as earlier versions, there was no trouble finding the correct exercises.
