Tuning a Double Bass

I have just purchased a 3/4 double bass recently, and it was "set up"
in the store. I have been playing electric bass for years, and just started
going acoustic.
I attempted to adjust the tuning the otherday with my KORG electronic tuner,
but it seems I am tuning the tones at least 2 steps higher than what was
done in the store. Are there any links with WAV files with already tuned
double basses I can use to get my ear used to the tones?
I did all the steps I usally do to tune my electric--starting with the 'E'
string, around 440H, and working from there.
