: : What is the measurable differance of a 1/2 size and a 3/4 size upright bass? Is it just the string lenght ,body size, or is it the overall lenght of the bass? I have seen basses that where "7/8 size" and where close in all measurements to a 3/4 size Kay/Engelhardt. Thanks for any help on my "Size Problem"

: Ben:

: Call Lewur music and request a catalog-in it is a chart with all bass sizes and their dimensions(I thought I had a 1/2 size until I measured it and looked it up on the chart;turned out to 5/8 size instead).

: Francis X.

Thanks Francis X, I live just down the coast from Lemer Music. It turns out my bass is a 3/4 size with a 41." string length, and my Kay has a 42" string length thats why it seems smaller.
