: : Hi, I'm currently an electric bassist and am going to be buying an upright fairly soon. I am most seriously considering the Bulgarian Bob Gullihur bass for many resons including that 5 strings are available. I have only played four strings and I really don't understand why 5's with a high C aren't much more popular. It seems the C would make it much easer to reach the upper ranges in walking and would be great for soloing (I'm into that sort of thing.) I can't imagine the C would get in the way of standard 4 string stuff at all either. But there has to be a reason more people haven't switched right? Please help, Thanks.
: : PS Even though Bob's bass looks great, if there are any other manufactures that make quality carved uprights for less then 3,000 I'd like to know, thanks.
: I LOVE THE FIVE STRING BASS WITH THE HIGH C. I PLAY A LOT OF CELLO MUSIC. SO THE HIGH C GET ME INTO THE CELLO RANGE.REMEMBER TO GET A MIRROR TO CHECK YOUR HAND POSITION'S DONT FORGET TO YOUR BOWING WATCH YOUR HANDS. SCAT WITH THE BOW. IT SHOW'S PHASING.LET THE BOW SING.WELL THATS ALL.CARLOS RIVERA. (BASSIST) NICNIC05@WEBTV.NET
