Thread Name: Bought a double bass today
Subject: RE: Bought a double bass today
I was falling asleep posting this last night and went right to bed as soon as I was done. Rereading it today, it makes me laugh. "Tighted"?

But, yeah, my instructor is impressed with the bass now. He said he thought it was kind of a piece of junk and couldn't believe the transformation. He was playing it and says, "Wow, listen to it growl! That's what a bass should do. I can't believe it's the same bass." Just shows you what a couple of little adjustments can do by someone who knows what he's doing. I raised the strings a little more and it sounds even better now and--oh--how nice it is to be able to turn those adjuster wheels!

Man, this bass is happening now! I'm terribly excited.
