    Hi everyone, I just joined TB after lurking in the forums and finally buying my first URB...a Shen SB150 purchased from Hammond Ashley in Seattle. Here's the requisite bass pic, sorry for the crappy camera-phone quality.

  2. Congrats on the new DB. That photo is definitely more art than information, but DB's are so photogenic it is hard to make a really bad photo of one. I actually like this one. Sort of mysterious, but the highlights on the forward ribs really make the picture. Welcome to the forum.

    Congratulations on the new bass. I think I actually played that bass last time I was in HA, or the time before that [I played two of the ones they had] from what I remember it was quite nice.

    Taken with a higher quality digital camera, that would be an awesome picture, even background-worthy.

    PS: Congrats on the new bass, I know how you feel!

    I love the shape of that bass... it reminds me of my S&D. Like the LaScala shape, too. Is there some famous, perfectly proportioned instrument out there that so many new basses are modeled after? Something about the relative sizes of the upper and lower bouts, and the way the violin corners and shoulders slope out is so recognizable....
