: I bought an Englehart M1 in very good condition a few months ago for $900 (along with a stand and carrying case. It sounds very good. Can anyone tell me about Engleharts and how they compare to other double basses. Thanks.

Englehardt bought out the Kay bassmaking stuff in the late 60's. There are good and mediocre Englehardts, many are in the same league as Kays, others are not. If it sounds good, you should be happy. Naturally, it is a laminated bass, which is good for many styles and uses, but is by its very nature different from most carved basses.
