: hi all,
: ok, i've finally realized i have to start playing upright. i have about 10 years experience on the electric (mostly 5 string), and my band plays a lot of bluegrass and folk/blues tunes.
: so, where to start. how much should I pay for a bass of reasonable sound and quality? any suggestions on where to look for one? what type of additional equipment will i need? will an upright sound good through my hartke 7000 and swr goliath iii 4x10? i plan on taking a lesson or two for help with positioning and technique so i don't have to re-learn later. is it most desirable to have a full size for sound/tone quality? I am 6'3 so i expect that's the right size for me.
: any help/direction/guidance/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. post reply here or just e-mail me directly. thanks for your help!!!

: mike
