In Reply to: diff between strunal 5/20 and 5/35...? posted by Link on May 18, 2002 at 08:37:17:
: I"m shopping around for basses and with the amount of money I have at this time adn the work I"m going to be doing with the bass, I'm probably going to get a strunal. I've seen both the 5/35 and 5/20- on several pages they are described the same, but the 5/35 is a little more expensive. Does anyone know the difference between the two? Or does have any comments on these bass(es)? Also, does anyone know of another brand or company that makes fairly good basses that are not too terribly expensive.I don't want to purchase one until I have a little more of an idea about them. There are no luthiers in this area and local music stores don't know too much about basses, let alone have a good selection to try out. I might try and go the extra mile and get a lewis for a little more money, but if it's possible to get a good sound out of a cheaper model, like one of the strunals, I'll purchase one of them. information or suggestions would be appreciated, many thanks...

Thank you for the info. My dad called around and I found out that the one is more expensive because the back is arched, which allows more res. than a flat back. Both also have carved tops and the fittings are sup. ebony on both. thanks again JT. I'm going to buy it at the end of the month and will have the summer to work on it and to take get it set up how I would like.
