leftydee Cheap fiddle, so what (47) RE: Cheap fiddle, so what 29 Oct 08


Take your fiddle to someone who tinkers with instruments (any amatuer luthier will do) and let him work with it. About 10 years ago I bought a chinese made upright bass. It was pretty lousy, but I whittled and sanded the bridge to make easier to play. I also put better strings on it and voila! it's not a half bad player. When people find out that I paid $200 for it they're shocked. It didn't take much to make it passable. Pay no attention and give no money to the snobs.

I own Martin Guitars worth thousands of dollars but I just recorded my new CD on a guitar that I paid $100 for. Why? 'Cuz it has the right sound! Don't let the snobs intimidate you.
