: advisability of playing acoustic bass, both arco and pizz from a sitting position. : Thanks (snip)
I prefer sitting and spent a few hours one day piling large books on chairs and measuring w/ a tape to determine the optimal height for least back stress, fingerboard accessibility, bow placement, etc. I found that the best height stool for me was 27". I had a tendonitis problem in my left thumb and supporting a bass while standing was not viable at the time.
