    I have a chance to perform in Italy this summer.

    I really want to put my best foot forward so I want to ship my own double bass from the East Coast of the US to Italy.

    Any one have any tips , thoughts, ideas suggestions on how to travel the maze of information I have already searched out on this issue.

    I have considered renting an instrument but never know what I might get nor do I even know where to start. I don't know anyone in Italy with an Instrument so I can't ask to borrow someones instrument.

    Anyone have experience with this phase of pre performance anxiety???
