Hi everyone, I am going to be (potentially) in the market for a new bass in a couple months and am curious to hear your opinions on midlevel double bass options in the 1500-3500 price range especially. I am currently playing a 1940-50s German laminated bass which I like but has given my lots of problems (unidentified buzzes, bridge movement, neck issues) over the year or so that I've owned it. I play mostly jazz in louder settings with a pick up but occasionally classical and pit orchestra work. Right now the options that I am seriously considering are as follows. A: Get an Upton Standard (ply bass arond 2500), I played one recently in their Boston showroom and enjoyed the bass. B: Get a Shen SB 150 Hybrid from my local luthier who is selling two of them at around 1900. C: Stick with my current bass and put some more money into it to fix issues as they arise and hopefully solve some of the problems with it. So I am curious what people think between these options for sound, playability and durability, tradeoffs between higher end ply vs lower end hybrid, price points, and so on. Really anything on the topic, or ideas I haven't considered yet. Sorry this post is a bit jumbled, I'm looking forward to your responses!
