    Welcome to TB. You've found a very good resource for DB info.

    The best place to start is the "Newbie" links that are anchored at the top of many of the doublebass forums. There is a wealth of info about basses, setup, strings, etc. Within those threads.

    Good luck in your journey. Keep us abreast.
