Hello bass community, I'm new here,

I play jazz, and have done since the mid 1960s, all styles. For the past 20 years mostly big bands in London. Pre Covid I was a regular member of 4 London based 16 piece bands, and an occasional player  with 2 other bands. I'm missing it all terribly.

I play a mid-19th century German 3/4 flat back (originally a 3 string). Not great, but does the job. Even better since care and attention at Laurence Dixon's Bass Place (Sam Wells did the job).  I bought it for £12 in 1963! Amplified via full circle bridge pick-up and a Polytone amp.

Looking forward to live gigs again...

Tim

I'm guessing that's a type of double bass? 

 Welcome aboard! :crigon_04:
