I'm still undecided, as I don't think an Eminence is going to be a practical buy in the UK and much as I like the NS, I do think there is a sort of "snobbery" in the Jazz world. So that a "proper" DB is acceptable - even if it has pretty low action and sophisticated amplification, "bolted-on" rather than instrinsic. But an EUB doesn't seem to be acceptable - I've never seen a pro Jazz group using one in the UK. So - I've been to see loads of Jazz gigs in the UK (off to another tonight) over the last few years and the vast majority have included DB and a very few have involved Bass Guitar - horrors! But not one single Jazz gig, no matter how small, has involved an EUB ! As my only reason to progress to DB is to get more into Jazz , It doesn't seem like a good idea, except as a "transition" instrument, but every Jazz pro has told me not to bother and go straight to the DB...?
