Howdy folks, I'm new here and I'm trying to get as much info as I can about double basses. I'm a guitarist and I've studied music and guitar for many years, but now I'm in love with the sound of the bass and I want to buy my first instrument to start learning. I'd be playing mostly jazz and I was thinking about a hybryd Shen, to get a better sound if I decide to experiment with the bow later. So, has anyone here compared the two hybrids they offer, 150 and 180? I only care about the sound, and if the difference was mainly cosmetical I'd go with the cheaper one. What do you think? Any help will be really appreciated. Thanks.
