Any out there play double bass violin?

I've always wanted to learn! I'm learning how to play guitar, but that is the only string instrument I have ever played. Would it be useful to learn violin before taking on double bass? How much does a double bass general weigh? I am 5'2" and about 95 lbs., but by golly I will not let that stop me! :D

The double bass will definitely be taller than you. :)
Person below me is a bit off. The double bass is actually the only four-stringed orchestral instrument that shares a similar set of tunings. Although different octaves and places, they are both tuned as G D A E.
When it comes to tuning and playing with the GDAE tuning system, violin is the way. However, I more highly advise you to take up the cello, which is basically a smaller double bass. It's tuned as ADGC, high to low. One of my good friends who is a very good double bass player in my orchestra started off as a cellist.
It's your call. Just make sure your hands and fingers are nimble enough to navigate the large fingerboard.
Try one out first at a store or your school to get a feel for it. Good luck!! :D
