a year ago I had the astounding luck to find an upright bass at a local auction and picked it up for only 80 bucks. It did need some significant repairs, but turned out to be a carved German bass of the same make Charles Mingus played. Which is to say it is worth more than 80 bucks...

Now I have it out of the shop after a year's worth of work, much of which I swapped for (a lot!) of honey. Now all that stands between me and "the Haitian Fight Song," is just some practice.
