Thinking 'Bout a URB Purchase


Thinking 'Bout a URB Purchase

Postby jamie » Sun Sep 20, 2009 4:10 am

Never had a URB.

Thinking 'bout this Engle. Gamba EC-1 listed local. Just saw the listing today, and haven't confirmed availability.

Checked new pricing, including shipping, and appears it may be a nice deal since it has been setup, Revolution I PU, case, stand, and extra strings.

Comments 'preciated, on the board, or via email.

Thanks,

Jamie

Hey Jamie, that's definitely a good deal assuming the bass is in good shape (sure looks like it). That's pretty much everything you'd need. Keep us posted!

Mike,

Many thanks for you approval.

That's the first URB I have seen on the local Craigs.

Will check on it.

If you've never played an Englehardt before I would suggest trying one out before you buy. The necks on Englehardts are very thin (more like an EB) and I find them to be uncomfortable to play.

For my own personal tastes, I agree with you Fred. But I know a lot of players who specifically chose an Engle for their first URB, for that very reason. Most of them were EB players getting into the URB game for the first time.

As to Fred's other point about try-before-you-buy....that's a definite. Make sure you don't hear buzzes or rattles that can't be attributed to small things like a loose endpin thumbscrew, a loose tuner, or a string end vibrating against the pegbox. What you want to avoid is a loose seam, bassbar, etc...things that would be expensive repairs. Also, make sure there are no cracks in the neck heel....that's a pretty common area for damage on Engles and Kays.
