Anyone ever heard of Lang basses? My understanding is that they are of chinese
manufacture. I'm looking to purchase my first upright, and I spoke to an individual who has one of these for sale. I don't think it has been set-up yet. I gather that set-up could be expensive, sometimes more than the value of the instrument. How much should I expect to pay for the service? I know it varies widely depending on the given instruments construction, but a ball park figure would be of interest. Secondly, My thought is to purchase a used bass in order to overcome the frustrations of getting the bass set-up to a reasonable playable state. Is this logical or would it be better to purchase a new one and fight my way through it. I assume that I could get a little better bass for my money if I go with a used one. Finally, i'm living in Nashville, (playing Jazz not country) If anyone can give me a heads up to a bargain, I would greatly appreciate it.
