Upton Bass – Hand Crafted, American Double Bass Maker
All Upton Basses are hand built in Mystic, Connecticut USA. With the exception of parts made from metal (tuners and strings) every 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? Total quality control and continual product development in the production process. We are listening to our instruments and players and returning the feedback we receive directly back into the product, to make them continually better.
We hand make everything from our standard models, Hero models, and custom commissioned basses. Our work and development is never done! Call the shop at +1 (860) 535-9399
