    Good DB Luthier Required

    I have a very good old German DB in need of an 'MOT'. I bought the bass SH about 35 years ago and has given very good service. I think it is time to give it an 'MOT' to bring it to top notch condition. My question is: Who do you consider to be the best guy in the UK to do this--and really knows his double bass? Recommendations? Many thanks.
  7. I am looking for a classical double bassist teacher in Northumberland--especially bowing technique. PM me if you teach. Thanks.
  8. Wanting to buy a set of Thomastik Mittells for 3/4 size bass. Please state age / use / and they do not have the after- length of the string at the tuners cut off. Price? If you have PM me. Thanks.

    Those of you who bow: What are the best strings you have tried? Sets or mixture. Arco being my first choice--pizz secondary.

    Bowing silver slap strings

    I have tried Silver Slaps. Good for pizz & slap---not very good on the bow. I currently have a set of Evah Pirazzi Weich on my bass---a good all round string for pizz / bow / slap. Suit me.

    Playing without an amp

    Tried various stings over the years and the best--for me- for volume & tone are Evah Pirazzi Weich. Good for pizz & arco.
