.....Hi Dave...I own a German 3/4 late 1800`s & an inexpensive German 4/4 shop bass (1950`s?).....the larger instrument is harder to play but the sound is bigger & deeper - very rewarding; for most gigs I find myself leaving the amp & the smaller bass at home...If you`re looking for the sound heard on records from the Jazz era it may be right for you - if you prefer a modern amplified sound there would be little reason to go the 4/4 route, IMHO.......BTW, I`m 5 ft.7 w/ average size hands for my height....Hope this helps - TB
