  1. Had two very successfull trades in person with Ovi, highly recommended.
  2. You can expect to pay 100%-300% more at a dealer. If you know what to look for and you have a good luthier that you Trust, you can save a lot of money buying a bass in the private market.
  3. It was ok in my bass, but if you like Spirocore, stick with it. If you want to go for something different, Evah Pirazzi mittel E or Passione stark E work well for me.
  4. I have used them, the strings that are most similar are the Belcantos, the light ones have a little less tension than Belcantos, pizz is also quite similar, short sustain, dark tone. I think they hold up better than Belcantos which sound great for a few weeks and then they are done. I agree that the Spiro E ist mighty, but it dies not always mix Well with other strings.
  5. FYI, this has a maple body, maple neck and an Amaranth (Purpleheart) top. This wood was purple when the bass was new and has now naturally faded because of exposure to UV light. https://www.wood-database.com/purpleheart/ This is what a Purpleheart Jonas looks like new:
  6. Classy Bass for a very good price.
  7. Wonderful Bass, used to be mine, I only sold it because I switched to six stringed basses. Very clear and articulate tone.
  8. Adamovic Jupiter Custom Bass 6-string withdrawn for now Nikola Adamovic is IMO one of the very best luthiers anywhere. I have owned everything from Alembic to Zon and this is the best fretted 6-string bass I have every played. However, I am going to switch to playing fretless bass exclusively and I am having built a wonderful Adamovic 6 fretless, so this one is for sale: Specs: - White limba body - Olive wood top - ash/maple/guariuba neck with a 34" scale, 24 frets - Jazz bass neck design, super comfortable, very low action - Greenheart fingerboard - Passive toneblend - Häussel single coil pickups - Weight: 3,8kg Very good condition, built in 2017. https://www.facebook.com/adamovicbassguitars
  9. Trimmo is right, there might be some opportunities in the second market. If you want to go for a new one, I find these to be allright considering the price. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F171112144951 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F172611649133
  10. Just buy a chinese carbon bow, that is probably the best you can do for very little money.
  11. If you are playing mostly in a Jazz context like myself, you would have to play some solos, this is when this stuff matters.
  12. All the jumps are easy because of repetition, the left hand remembers what to do, also in this case the heel of the neck helps to find the right spot. Although, what would be an "e" on the G-string with a D-neck would be a "f" on an Eb-neck. You could compare it to playing electric basses with different scale lenghts. I am used to 34" and can play pretty flawlessly even when sightreading. I could do well with different scale lenghts, but I would lose a bit of my routine and precision.
  13. As I said, good for you, but playing the double bass means relying on a system of motions and thousands of hours of practice, so I would never sacrifice all that or even a small bit of that for an instrument which is so unfamiliar. Over the years, I had some basses converted and also the string lenght shortened, they sounded even better after restauration and were much easier to play.
  14. You need a high pass filter anyway, so it is not that much of a problem. The Realist soundclip does not have the boomy low end as the classic Realist pickup by the way.
