My nine-year-old daughter was tossing up whether to play Sax or the Bass. Next year she can join the school band and they don't allow 6-stringers (!!!) so she was thinking of starting the sax this summer or the bass. Being the thoughtful dad I am, I steered her towards the bass.
so, we start lessons in two weeks (side note, my seven-year-old is playing the drums) so I need to look at a bass for a young girl. Any ideas? she tried one in this rinky-dink "lesson" store and it was HUGE next to her!! I know basses are big, so I thought I'd ask around for any ideas on a "girly" bass. She wants a pink one. Anyhow, looking to spend around $250-$300.
