Akos Balazs, Budapest, “Gold-Series” Double Bass anno 2007
An instrument such as this will get you a job in the profession. Once you've got yourself a job, you'll no doubt start earning lots of bucks and will have your eyes on something old and expensive. However, my guess is that you'll still want to keep this “gold series” instrument by Akos Balazs as your second or touring instrument because its just so-darned good.
It will definitely prove to be one of your shrewder investments too.
