Hi everyone! [Context] I was a bassplayer for a covers band for many years during high-school/university. Now I (and the rest of the band) finished uni, band ended and we all went our separate ways. I moved to a different city far away, to a building where I can't make a lot of noise. Since I still want to play bass but I cannot take my gear with me (my amp is kinda big) or make a lot of noise, I was thinking of buying an acoustic or an semi-acoustic bass and play it strictly unplugged. [Questions] I have never seen an acoustic or a semi-acoustic bass live so I don't know their sound and have some questions: - How loud are they? Are they as loud as an acoustic guitar? - Is the quality in sound the same as if they were plugged in? Or is there a large decrease? - Is there a big difference in sound from acoustic to semi acoustic bases? I was checking out a few of them on: Thomann Acoustic and Semi-Acoustic Basses I liked the design of the Höfner Ignition basses but I don't know about the sound unplugged. Any help would be appreciated. Sorry if these are dumb questions to you. Thanks! TLDR: Do Acoustic/Semi-Acoustic Basses sound good unplugged?
