I've had my Rogeri for about a year now and so far I've been generally happy with it. I play in a community orchestra and quite honestly, I don't think that I need much more in a bass for that level of play. It delivers enough warmth and volume to work in the bass section. What I'm looking for are ideas on tweaks that might deliver a bit more articulation (especially on the E string) or other tonal improvements in the bass. It's currently strung with Belcantos, but I'm open to other string recommendations. I'm also deliberating adding an extension at some time in the future. My bow is a Prochownik pernambuco with black hair.
