Hello, this is my first post on talkbass. I was wondering if anybody had suggestions here. I'm new to the double bass world, and I'm about to buy one pretty soon, and my budget doesn't go over 2400 $. I am taking serious electric bass lessons, but would like to play some jazz. Now... I live near Ottawa, Canada, and there's only one store selling double basses: Peter Dawson's violons. The bass they have around my budget is a Shen DB150. Do you think it's reasonable, at 2200$ ? There are other stores in montreal and quebec city, but they have other models which I don't know of. All I know is that they're made in Germany, are hybrid, and cost a little less (1800$) Should I consider more the price, or the place and service ?? Any advice is strongly appreciated, thank you!
