One of the great things about student double basses is that they're often available as an outfit. For example, check out the Bellafina Prodigy Series Double Bass Outfit.

Along with premier D'Addario Prelude Strings and a well-aged Brazilwood octagonal bow, this top-selling double bass outfit is a must-have for any aspiring player.
Or, if you're simply looking to buy the bass itself, turn your attention to the Engelhardt EM1 Maestro Double Bass 3/4 Size Bass. Featuring a laminated spruce top, maple back and ribs, rosewood fingerboard and a shaded light brown finish, it's no wonder why this bass is one of the most widely-used among high school and college musicians. Another favorite double bass model is the Palatino Billy Bass. Sporting a black finish, a cutaway body design for easy access to the upper mid-section of the fingerboard and an adjustable maple bridge for changing its tone, this double bass is ideal for both rockabilly and jazz.
There you have it! Along with the student double basses mentioned, there are other models that deserve your consideration as well. So what else is there to say except browse away? The student double bass to perfectly match your own unique style is definitely waiting in this catalog.
