Which One To Get?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [DB]' started by Jace The Bass, Oct 22, 2004.

  1. Although Ivé Played EB for 10 years I've saved enough money to buy me a DB
    But a Friend of mine told me I should invest in a EUB now I have a choice
    Which is the better to get?
    Because I'm keen to learn the REAL BASS sound I have a teacher so I'm keen to get advice of the pro's and con's of each Upright bass before I depart with a large amount of my savings

    With friends like that, you don't need enemies. The word "invest" was an interesting choice, as REALBASSES tend to hold their value better than Fudgesicles. As for the rest, in your own words...

    Sounds like you want a real bass, no? A Bomb Pop may feel like a REALBASS, but it won't sound like one. If you are thinking about getting an instrument because of a sound you are attracted to, I'd go for the one that actually produces that sound. :)
