: My daughter Tara plays the double bass, she is only 8 and to date has been using a 1/4 size - however she's not very big + her teacher has recommended a 1/8 size - and there seems to be very little information on them. (She's only been playing 6 months - so we're looking 'beginner' here!) We're in southern England - so if anyone has any ideas of where I can get hold of a second had 1/8 size in the UK, Ireland, France (or possibly Florida USA - business takes me out there fairly regularly) I'd really appreciate hearing from you.
I was just chatting with a fellow whose son (13) goes to a Summer Bass Program in Wisconsin (US). He mentioned that an 8 year old student was enrolled last year and played a cello strung and tuned for bass. Perhaps that's a solution, and an inexpensive one, since it is a short-term problem.
