    Just recently got into playing upright after many years of playing. Would like to upgrade the bass I started on, looking for Azola, Clevinger or something in that direction. Thanks Adam

    I've had them all going back many years - BSX, Clevinger, Eminence, etc etc - never had an Azola but almost commissioned one right before they stopped building

    I think the higher end of the Azola would probably be the best made but the short scale ones were fairly run of the mill

    for my money,the only ones I've kept are an NS CR4 and an Ergo (only because its cheap - I never play it)

    my vote NS - even their less expensive line would work as the dimensions are pretty much the same

    good luck

    I'm looking to possibly sell my new (to me) CR5M. I love it but have come to the conclusion I'm not an upright player. PM me if interested. It's in mint shape and comes with gig bag and stand.
  4. There's a Merchant Vertical Bass on eBay for a reasonable price. I own one and, with all due respect to the other posters in this thread, it is a vastly superior instrument.

    I've got an Azola Bug Bass II in the San Francisco area I'm selling. Blond wood, ebony fingerboard markings (dots), active electronics, upper bout extension.
    Great shape. Good bag. Nice setup by Gael McKeon here in Berkeley.
    Send me an email. Thanks....Lyle
