    Hi soph - what kind of music are you thinking about? Are you looking for a "classic rock" sound, or an "acoustic-y" sound, or a modern "high-tech" sound? The answer to that question would be a good guide for selecting a bass, and a rig.

    And, what's your DB background? Arco, jazz pizz, or ???

    When you listen to music, who are your favorites? :)

    in terms of double bass i guess im classically trained, i play in two orchestras so yeh guess that says it all!
    Im after the rock 'n' roll kinda sound i think, i did once upon a time attempt a being in a band but we ll brush over that!! :meh:
    any jazz i pick up i d probably stick to playing on my DB.
    music taste is actually more punk, rock and heavy metal , i save classical music when i have work to cram for and stuff.
    so i guess like i said, rocks the sound im after, any advice?
