Where's the golf thread?

BottomHeavyKate's Avatar I'm getting much better contact, lift and consistency in my drives. It seems so matter what I do, I slice hard. It's not as bad with my 3 but damn it's awful with my driver.

Double/Upright bass stuff
Aug 20, 2014 - 3:35 PM - by mlwarriner
mlwarriner's Avatar I know, I know. "Over there" probably has all of the info I'm looking for, and more. But I like it here much better, so...

I'm just starting to get into playing upright, and have some questions. Specifically, I'm looking for suggestions on the following:

1. Strings. Specifically, non-steel ones. What's good for the price, and what's not? My tendencies are already leaning toward slapping/'billy type stuff, and after spending a wee bit of time this afternoon fiddling around with slapping, my blisters have blisters. So maybe something lower tension???

2. Pickups. Suggestions for something that will simply take my signal and send it off to an amp. Doesn't have to be crystal clear, nor audiophile perfect. Should probably work with nylon strings.

3. Amps. If avoidable, I really would rather not lug my upright, my 800RB and my SWR 6x10 all to the same gig. Are there gig-able combos that work well for upright?

This is only the beginning, I'm sure there's more to come.
