Upton Bass – Hand Crafted, American Double Bass Maker
All Upton Basses are entirely hand made in Mystic, Connecticut USA. With the exception of parts made from metal, such as tuners and strings, every wooden part of every Upton Bass is crafted right here in our workshop. We carve our own tops, backs, necks blocks, etc. We even press our own laminates from hand laid veneers. Top quality wood and materials come in our shipping docks and out the other end come fine double basses we are proud to sell. Come see for yourself! You will quickly appreciate the quality of work and passion we invest in every American made double bass we make.
Why the trouble of making our own basses when we could import instruments like our competitors? Complete control of QUALITY and continual product development in the production process. We are listening to our instruments and players (many pro) and returning the feedback we receive directly back into the product, to make them continually better.
We hand make everything from student basses, to our standard models, Hero models, to custom commissioned basses. Our work and development is never done!
