I am a new-comer to Orchestra Bass - I have played for the past four seasons
in a community orchestra - 4 concerts per year- we have 4-6 basses
and a full brass/woodwind/percussion compliment & play some "big"
symphonies ( Brahms, Tchi, Bruchner etc). Often I have trouble
hearing myself &/or the section.

Can you give me some advice about playing
in a section and dealing with the sound that I do or don't hear?
I have been taught nothing and I have read nothing as of present about
this "problem" - maybe it is only me! Thanks for any advice you can
share (other than a new louder bass - I'm happy w/ my bass) Al
