“Feigenbaum” Bohemian Model 7/8ths 5-String Double Bass
“Upton consistently makes incredible basses. This instrument is truly one of the best I’ve had the pleasure to play”
It’s always fun to work with a repeat customer, and we’ve enjoyed watching Mr. Feigenbaum go from a teenage beginner to an adult professional. This bass was created to be an orchestral powerhouse, and as I write this, I’m listening to Mr. Feigenbaum play her for the first time!
This 7/8’s Bohemian 5’er with a 42″ string length has a tight grained German spruce top and Big Leaf maple for the back, sides, and neck. Custom varnished to match an 1800’s Italian bass and setup with Spirocore’s and Belcanto strings.
Mr. Feigenbaum played the bass for 5 minutes and declared, “I’ll take her!”.
