    Sorry if I came across too harsh. I'm sure that neither the OP nor the author of the iBook (Eddie Collins) have any bad intentions.

    It's also worth mentioning that double basses are not standardized at all, especially basses from before the 20th century. As far as playability is concerned, scale length is the most important...

    Re: Shaping and Reshaping Picks

    The Golden Gate is fine as it is, if that's what you like. The edge is well rounded, there's no need to polish or to work it over. I'd be perfectly happy with it - however, I'm not into rounded...

    I've bought an MD 515 about a year ago, and I have never regretted buying it. It was a huge improvement over the Kentucky KM 250 that I've owned before. I've also tried an MD 315, which I didn't like...
