Is there one??? And if so please give me more info!!
Nearly everyone has an ebony fingerboard.
How about a bull fiddle? Or a doghouse?
Good luck finding one that doesn't.
Really? I thought they came with rosewood? sorry I don't know much about standups as you guys see... DO they normally have flats or rounds?
All double bass strings are "flat" wound. Of course, anything is possible.
Not true. Some wound guts are round as are Velvet Anima.
Thx guys been playin' eletric for bout 3yrs now and fretless eletric for almost 6m's so I was looking at the standups, man they look good. Any more info plz share!!!
I think he's talking about fingerboard shape. Either flat (never really seen these), rounded or bevelled. The majority are rounded, but bevelled ones are common also from what I understand.
As standups go, think Benny Hill probably had a flat, where he most likely enjoyed a round or two.
Hey Tommygunn, check out the newbie links at the top of the this forum. Lots of good info there.
I was about to argue with "stand up". May have to rethink that.
With Tubao's pic, who cares about a god damn FB? Esperanza sandwiched between two basses.....works for me.
I'm sorry, did I hear you correct? Did you say sandwiched between two bassists?
Come on! Stand up and show some respect.
No they were right... I play eletric and we have roundwound, flatwound, and halfwounds, I just figured standup basses had those as well. I have another question, why do they have ebony and flatwounds? On eletric basses ebony protects from fingerboard damage with roundwounds. And also the bass man at the local music store said that there is a "jazz" standup, it's height is the same but width is narrower... is there such a thing? He said he got his used for 'bout 600 and has only one little chip on the back. Sounds nice and in my price range, oh and I'm only 13 so my bidget is limited.
Any suggestions on good standup brands?
Thx for your time!!!
gasparo da salo
Thx I'll check them out! are they cheaP???
Nothing in the double bass world is "cheap".
That one for 600 the bass man had... thats cheap-er than the 21000000000000000 standups out there
