Orange Tree pear bass is my go to. Love it.
Great comparison, thank you !
That was fantastic!
I just went to Premier Sound Factory's website tonight and saw the thumbnail for the Acoustic Bass Premier (Coming Next), but you can't click on it yet. So it's coming.
Thanks! Glad you liked it
This reminds me of Bill Evans trio. Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful music

Hi Mr. Horn Rollo,
Now we are in NY for some promotion of our products. I will keep going after 27th Sep.
I'm looking forward to showing the new bass to you soon. Thank you for your patience.
What piano are you using?
Ravenscroft 275 Close mic only with some reverb from Altiverb 7
Reminds me that I didn't pull the trigger on the OT Pear Bass during the group sale. 50% worth of orange slices sounds good ignoring that fact. Not an immediate need for me so this gives me time to check out other options.
Just saw this page with their Product timeline. Looks like the bass will be back next month.
Straight ahead bass is still only $36.
I'm strongly considering it myself.
This thread cost me $36 a while back, but you won't be disappointed if you pull the trigger. It's quite good.
Modwheel's The Lowdown is great too, and goes really deep into various sonic FX, so IMHO it's not redundant to have both, as Straight Ahead can be thought of as more of a detailed "bread-&-butter" bass.
I also have Orange Tree's CorePear from a group buy and it's okay, though not as edgy and authentically variable as Straight Ahead. OTS is one of my favorite developers ever, but in truth I don't think their upright bass is quite up to the level of their Evo series instruments, and Straight Ahead is better. FWIW.
Didn't see that Rob, thanks! I guess it's only old release dates. Who needs them ahead of time anyway? Maybe it's better not knowing than to have a date and then have them miss it. Would be funny if they hit the same date 5 years later (he said it was coming out soon). The real question is will previous owners get the new version? I wouldn't get your hopes up.
Definitely on the short list. Thanks!
The CorePear's sized initially concerned me, but the demos sound so good. I know demos can be misleading at times, but my satisfaction with their guitars alleviated doubt. And my needs are are not huge for double bass.
The Lowdown is more than I was looking for, but with no go to bowed double bass, and its "deconstructed" articulations, this has my attention as well.
The CorePear is most certainly not "bad", nothing made by OTS is. But if Straight Ahead Bass is still only $36 instead of $90, then at that price it's the less expensive option (unless you have a bunch of orange slices to use), and an obvious choice.
For somewhat more $$$, The Lowdown is an amazing library.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if OTS, at some point, made a new upright acoustic bass that utilizes the Evolution features...
I do have 50% off worth of slices, so the CorePear would be $30. The Lowdown is priced nicely for the specs.
I'll be taking a deep look into these tonight.
