Hey all,

I play in a university big band, and I am looking at my options in terms of getting an acoustic upright bass. I'm kinda having trouble deciding what I want though. I'd like to know what you all would consider to be the best size for applications in jazz. 4/4 (full size), 3/4, 7/8, or any other sizes that I should consider. I'd like to have a pretty big sound with plenty of character, but I'd like it to be focused and tight. If I can't find what I want with acoustic, I may just go with an electric upright.

Any input would be appreciated! Thanks!
