Moved here and made it's own topic. OP, let me know if the title works for you, I can change it to something else.

In general, my opinion is that a single rotor bass made by someone like Yamaha will be a better fit long term compared to a lower quality double.  But there are also good used doubles (independent or dependent) that can be had for a reasonable price (1-2k) if you can swing it. Also, people have reported good things about particular inexpensive double basses such as the Mack brass, jp rath, and Wessex.

Rule of thumb: Stay away from Chinese instuments on eBay. They're often a little cheaper than from a distributor but you also don't get any of the vetting and customer support. Some people have been quite happy with the savings and been fine with the instrument they got. Others... Not so much. If it's the only horn you have, you probably would best shy away. At least that's my two cents.

After a few years of carrying my gorgeous Cronkhite case on my back, a case of mutes and things, a laptop case with just my bell flare in it and opening doors with my foot I finally went to Big 5 and picked up a double rifle case. Much cheaper though less protective than a pick-n-pluck Pelican 1700... I dig the look but most of all the over abundance of pockets. My straight neckpipe fits in one of the handgun pockets and I bet if I ever get a closed wrap single section like I had thought about it would fit in the other. Sheridan brace, tuner, spray bottle... Too much room, not enough stuff!

my short review is that it feels well made, the zippers are smooth, and the backpack straps are very comfortable even with a Cronkhite zipper bag filled with six mouthpiece pouches weighing me down. The 40" size is the perfect length for my valve tubing wrap, but if you have a more compact and convenient wrap a 36" double rifle case would be the way to go.

I'm sure that's exactly what he said, without even looking, because you're always so conscientious and honest and magnanimous and intellectually courageous when you're not getting your way in here ... well, or pretty much whenever you disagree with anyone on anything you're at all invested in, just as anyone with a healthy, confident ego demonstrates.
 
 Yeah, RIGHT.
 
You're clearly a model of Christianity--displaying the very heart of Jesus as the purest, kindest, most Christlike Christians see him. I'm sure your brethren would all be proud to count you as one of their own based upon your behavior in here--particularly your noble grace and humility.

Too bad there's no way to set up a topic that denies access based upon an insufficient inclination toward honesty.
I'll help Bob. That's 7 useless, off topic posts.

Did you happen to read the comments?  They were bashing the reporter and calling for him to be fired from Fox News.

I went looking unsuccessfully for a link to Milt Bernhart's version of the solo in Sinatra's "I've Got You Under My Skin". It's the version where the soloist tongues 16th notes on a high F#  . I think it is by far the best version of this solo, although I did find many other versions on youtube and dailymotion.

As I started to work on my high register, I was asked: "If you are using your tongue to increase air speed, how are going to use it for articulation?" So I stopped using my tongue for things other than articulation. The tongue is a shortcut for high notes, and depending on how serious you get, it will take you a while to unlearn doing this. It took me some time.

And please also watch this clip (also from Fox News!):

Fox News could not even find a single Republican politician to defend on-air Trump's comments, much less back him up! 

Is this (at last) the end game?

What you are saying is that ethics govern human behavior... except for the things you don't like, because you like ethics, and ethics or lack thereof can't be responsible for them because you like ethics.

Even Fox & Friends couldn't support him

Because you're wilfully blind I expect.

Yup ... a characteristic that's just not an option if you take honesty seriously.
 
(That comment may separate some careless from more competent readers, I suspect.)
