    Bass for a 6 year old.

    We got an Ibanez Mikro for our daughter when she was (a small) 9 year old. 10 now and still moans about the stretching at the money end, but she's working towards Rockschool Grade 4 on it and is planning to audition for School of Rock in the West End soon. https://www.ibanez.com/usa/products/detail/gsrm20_03.html Nice bit of kit for the money.

    Clever time signature changes.

    Tam Lin - Fairport Convention.

    Just bought fake D'addario strings or not ?

    They should be in a sealed bag with the number on the outside.

    Ibanez mikro

    My 10 year old daughter's got one. It's a really nice bit of kit. (The tuners could be a bit better, but they do the job.)

    In an outfit like that, he'd have to.

    Fret buzz on one note only.

    Is the string ok? My daughter had a similar issue on her bass and on examination, the string had been damaged where it passed over the fret in question.

    Is this nice?!

    I might be willing to pay said collector to lock it away for a bit longer.

    The Harley Benton Beatbass from Thomann is another decent, cheap version. (Need to budget for a decent set of flats for it though) https://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_beatbass.htm

    Musical ancestors.....?

    An extremely distant cousin (3rd, x times removed?) was the mother of a bunch of kids with the name von Trapp who had some success as a singing group.

    Not quite. She taped felt over the strings as she felt this worked better when using a pick. See tip 113 http://carolkaye.com/www/education/tips101.htm and tip 100 here https://www.carolkaye.com/www/education/tips51.htm
