: : I am currently looking to buy a mid- priced bass for an intermediate/advanced player playing mostly jazz but also some classical. I looked at the Cremona SB-3, the Prima bass with the sandalwood fingerboard, and the Englehardt M-1. Are these basses decent quality or should I consider spending a little more money.

: I would consider spending a little more money, I played on and Englehardt through highschool, and it really sucked. Meisel makes a decent bass, bow and bag package for about $2,000 I think the model is 8900 or 8950 The Engelhardt is O.K (no , I don`t own one) for stuff like bluegrass and rockabilly but if I were you I`d look at something slightly higher in the price range. I haven`t tried one but I`ve heard a lot of good things about the Bulgarian basses Bob Gollihur imports - might be worth a look ! As with all basses (Engelhardt included) a good set-up is vital , you can get a really good quality bass , capable of producing a superb tone , but if it is badly set-up it will play like shit ! Proberbly best to take an experienced bassist or , if possible , a luthier along with you . Good luck in your hunt for a bass . ---- Andy .
