    I'm stuck between these 2 upright basses.
    For the looks I want to go for the NS Design one,
    but both the price, and delivery time of this bass is a bummer (deliverytime is about 3-4months) I saw.

    What do you guys think of the soundquality difference between the 2?

    Is it worth going for the VE-500, or should I wait for the WAV4?

    Check the WAV4 thread in the double bass forum (electric upright Basses (EUB)) There is a Palatino thread as well . The WAV4 is head and shoulders above the VE500 in all aspects. If you can find a used one it's even a better deal. Used ones show up every so often. I got mine used for about $500. I love mine and now use it instead of my fretless. It was a pretty easy transition. You won't be sorry.

    Shoot, I'd hit a WAV4 for $500 if I could find one...
