Hello all double bassers! I am interested in joining the double bass world. I currently play bass guitar (and love every minute of it), but I think I am going to rent an upright sometime soon. There is a shop downtown that rents them, and I am going to check it out tomorrow (hopefully). I was wondering what some good questions to ask would be. I already was thinking I would rent a cheap ply bass, for practical reasons. Are cases and bows usually included with a rental? What strings should it come with? What is a fair price for an entry level ply bass? This is a small city by the way, only one place I know of for bass rentals. What will I need to purchase to go with the bass (ie rosin)?
