We keep getting requests for our Klotz Double Bass copy! This tidy design is the most popular of our Custom Commission instruments, which began with a 2012 project to build a copy of a 1700s Matthias Klotz contrabass from a complete set of tracings. With its wide and rounded features, almost symmetric upper and lower bouts, this compact bass has found a broad array of fans from chamber music to bluegrass. The 40.5″ string length gives a very quick response with depth and projection from the deep ribs and flat back. A pearl of a bass that always invites you to play, it will be missed in the shop!
At Upton Bass, we offer our clients instruments of exceptional value. Our 5-Year warranty, free adjustments for six months after purchase on our double basses, and a continued personal relationship with our company make Upton Bass the place to buy your new double bass! In addition to the double bass instruments, we carry a full line of bass accessories. We have the bass rosin you want to go with the bass bow of your choice. Add a bass bag to protect your investment. Choose the bass strings that suit your style of play and add a hand-made Upton Bass Revolution Solo II pick-up to make your bass stage- ready!
