The Upton Bass “De la Ville” Double Bass Bag is truly the perfect double bass case for rigorous, real-world use. Lightweight (6 lbs.), highly protective, and inexpensive: the Upton Bass “De la Ville” is unparalleled in quality at this price point! Why is this double bass bag called “De la Ville”? De la ville can be loosely translated to “around town”—and that’s exactly what this bass bag is made for!
In 2005 Gary, owner and founder of Upton Bass, set out to build a durable yet light-weight bass bag for just over $100. Gary distinguished between the fundamental and “luxury” features of the deluxe double bass bag and worked closely with our factory to build a double bass bag that was worthy of the Upton Bass name. Prototypes of our Upton Bass “De la Ville” Double Bass Bag were road and gig-tested over many months to ensure that the handles were secure and the fabric would not tear. This double bass case was pulled in and out of trucks, cars, auditoriums, dorms, nightclubs and bars and still retained its excellent qualities of workmanship. Our real world testing gave Gary the confidence to begin production and put the Upton Bass name on the “De la Ville” Double Bass Bag.
