    I've just bought my first double bass, its 3/4 size and its beautiful, it came with a piezo pickup however I haven't a clue how to install it. Ive seen with guitars they drill a hole in the bottom...but no way am i going to trust myself with a drill and my beautiful bass. Should I get it the pick up profesionally installed? Also, what sort of amp should i use if im going to be playing it at gigs and stuff?
  2. We need to know what kind of pickup. Post a pic if you don't know.
