This Josef Rubner Double Bass was built in Marchneukirchen, Germany
Stunning wood, great sound, and ease of play make this a standout in a crowd of German basses. Very light and resonant. The back and ribs ripple with figured tight grain maple. This bass was restored and bought from Lou DiLeone of New England luthier fame. This instrument has a story and a remarkable voice to tell it – a tremendous value at this price point, and a staff favorite. ... See MoreSee Less
This remarkable Juzek Master Art contrabass is from 1931, hand numbered 71. It has just finished a transformative restoration here at Upton Bass.
This classic Bohemian bass has become a fantastic player again with modern geometry. A partial list of improvements include: New European spruce top. Neck replacement with original scroll graft. Completely refurbished ribs and back. New end block and endpin. Complete Upton setup from nut to tailgut, including fresh Ebony board. Gorgeous warm, antiqued varnish integrates the new top and just glows – Chris really took this to another level!
This Juzek Master Art now has the vibe of a bygone era with the predicability of a new instrument. Tight punchy Juzek sound. A compact classic now a pleasure to play and admire.

Love it! I have #65 in restoration right now!
I'm glad you didn't touch the finish. I read that the Engelhart factory stripped the gold paint off of one the old TV model Kays and I almost got physically ill.
Every year or so I pick my Kay up and it's still in tune. Not loud but stable...
Were you there for New Year’s Eve?
Can you paint one of those gamba corner basses dark red for me?
i want one !
When was this shot taken?
A beautiful site
I mean yes but it probably won't be back together anytime soon.
Mine is a Kay..1/4 1952

EUB is a page. Upton Bass is a mecca. do it. convince me its real. give me the only reason doubles are worth travel n care trouble, is because THE SOUND. you can instant message, if this seems ridiculous. im a musician. i am takin serious. lil or nothing else in my life. i know most facts. knock me out. close this deal... six months aint that long. my sincerest graditude. im not fucking with you. please, say right thing, im on your side! love, ware

Inspiring! Keep up the great work fellas! 2020 is my year for an Upton!
Love it - nice work!
If this Juzek doesn’t work out, I’m giving you a call, Gary!
The bane of being left handed, I’ve always had to play one of these backwards.
I’m on my second Upton Bass, this one a step up and made in US. Fabulous quality and sound for a reasonable price.
They are beautiful.
Wished I could afford to have you make the bass of my dreams...
