    Hello all,

    This is my first DB post. I just purchased my first Double Bass last Monday. It's a laminated 1/2 Meisel and cost 2K. I love it. Can't keep my hands off it.


    Just needed to share. :D

  3. I'm amazed! Someone here who actually likes the double bass? :eek:


    Seriously, that awesome. I hope you stick with it, and hang around here! :bassist:
     
  4. Way to go man! I bought my first bass in about 1957, with money from my paper route!
    I wouldn't put mine down either! I even use to lay on my bed and play.

    Thanks for the welcome and encouragement. This is a great site. Newbie links, topics, and discussions, are all very helpful.

    Thanks again!
     
  6. no sh*t you love it. Excuse the vugar language, but it seemed appropriate at the time. Anyway, before I played DB bass was a hobby, now its what I want to do with my life.

    Way to go!! I played EB for many years and got my first DB several years ago. I first wondered if I'd get board with its "limitations" but as soon as I picked it up it was like the light suddenly came on. A whole new exciting world of bass playing opened up and I haven't been able to get my fill since.

    I know that you're going to get a lot of enjoyment from your new DB and you're going to become a better musician because of it.

    agree. I got my DB about 8 months ago, and love playing DB. To me it's what bass is suppose to sound like. I'm just having a hard time getting the band to let me play it full time in the group:rolleyes:

    I'm no longer the rookie!

    You guys gotta quit calling me names like "Kid", "Junior", or "Rook".
