: I think that if you found a good sounding bass for that price you are very lucky!! There is a company called Christopher that makes consistently good instruments from China. Samuel Shen is another. The prices are slightly higher but the quality is so good that the top bass shops in NY and on the West coast now carry them. I can get you or anyone elsecone of these fine instruments much cheaper than you will find in those shops. For more info email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Enjoy your new bass, AMEN!
I have seen the Samuel Shen basses but not the Christopher. I am sure they both are fine quality basses. The Cremona I think will serve me well for what
I will be involved with. I had a friend who plays a german carved bass whom
I have played alot of gigs with over the past few weeks look at my Cremona
last night and he basically said for the investment i made I couldn't
have found a better bass. I know alot of people don't care for imported instruments but i never really put much emphasis on where it comes from or what name is on it as long as it sounds good, plays good, and looks good unless of course it's a 5 string banjo then were talking a different story entirely.
Thanks for the info.
