  1. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  2. I would be dubious about a DB stand that has no neck support. How sturdy are the ones you have made?---meaning that having no neck support. Are the bass's 'kept out of harms way? ' Some guys don't like/use stands on gigs--I use a stand and I think putting a bass on a stand is safer than laying it down on the floor--even band members accidentally will knock into them. I did hear of a bassist who after a gig put his DB on the floor to pack up and one of the band accidentally walked into the bass and broke the neck of the bass--a costly gig!
  3. Due to advancing years (Me) I want to sell or exchange my German double bass which I have had for many years. Circa from 1880's. Written valuation in 2006 between £4,500 to £5,000.

  4. Contains Fingerboard Pickup / Pre-amp. Does not include Wing Pickup--you supply. Price to include postage. PM me.
  5. Hi Kevin Like you I have played pizz for years. 'Messed' about with the bow--self taught. Recently got serious about the bow. Decided to get more serious about the bow. Found a pro orchestral double bassest. One of the best things I have ever done. There is so much to learn about the bow. 'Opened my eyes'as they say about bowing--and about the bass. My recommendation is to find a good classical orchestral player---well worth it.
