: Hi. I have a URB that was made in China it has ebony finger board and a good set up. I think it sounds and plays well but I want sell it and get something better. I was thinking about a Engelhardt Swingmaster or a Strunal carved top,laminated sides and back. What I was wondering is if anyone has played both of those basses and how do they compair. Oh I mostly play Jazz and experimental music. thanks
My question to you is, what do you think? I have played both basses. I had an Englehardt S-1 for a while, but my opinion, and for that matter the opinion of anyone else, is certainly tertiary to your own gut instincts. There are probably a half a dozen other basses in that price range (S-1, Strunal)that might interest you. Go to a good shop (bass violin shop), and check out all the basses in your chosen price range. Ignore the manufacturers or luthiers, and buy the one that best suits your style.
