Where to buy a double bass in Perth

Post by ChloeHaddon » 25 Nov 2017, 10:31

I'm 15, I've taken double bass lessons at school for a few years and now my parents and I are looking to buy a double bass. Does anyone know of a place in or near Perth to buy a double bass that's not too expensive?

Welcome Chloe! You'll get some really good advice here over the next week or so. A few questions:

What bass size? (How tall are you?)
New or used?
Purpose: classical, Jazz, etc?.
Playing with a Bow, Pizzicato (plucking), or both?
How soon do you want one?
What's you budget?

We can also give our advice on basses you look at, or we can suggest basses we see online to check out.
Basses: Fender - Rob Allen - Tobias - Duesenberg
Rigs: Jule Amps - AER - GK - Bergantino - Baer

Robbie Pisano, he does repairs and rebuilds and is a super guy,
his number is 0409 340 841, just say Bill Crossland recommended him.
