ripov acoustic versus electric !!!??? (135* d) RE: acoustic versus electric !!!??? 09 Sep 14

Electric instruments don't have to be louder than accoustic, this is up to the performer. Ahd the the OP asked about type of instrument, not volume.
Due to the difficulty of obtaining the appropriate traditional instruments (serpents, sackbuts and bass viols), bass instruments at sessions are frequently electric bass guitars with tiny battery amplifiers, which are also much more portable than double basses or cellos.
