im hopefully going to be getting a bass soon and ive tried out a btb200 and thought it was pretty good but ive got a few questions that i would like answering before i spend my parents money.

ive heard the bodies used to be agathis but are now mahogany, how would this affect the sound?

if i got an agathis one would the horn on top be weaker and more likely to break off?

should i choose mahogany over agathis?

thanx guys

You realise you made two threads, right? Delete one of them.

I don't know if your information about the body woods is right, but typically mahogany has higher resonance in the low midrange.

The horn is very unlikely to break off without serious misuse of the bass either way.
