We’ve worked hard to perfect our double bass C-extension. We think it has evolved into the smartest, most playable extension for your contrabass available.
The Upton Bass C-Extension represents a fundamental rethink of this popular contrabass option. Primarily, the Upton Bass C-Extension was conceived and designed to have no structural impact to your scroll. None whatsoever – no cuts, no notches, no drill holes. The Upton Bass C-Extension stays securely in place entirely through string pressure and meticulous fitting to the scroll’s contours.
For musicians our goal was to make the Upton Bass C-Extension the most playable extension available, allowing the hand to access the extended fingerboard or quickly flip your preferred combination of gates. We’ve seen many bass players transition to a single E-gate which we count as a reward for our efforts!
With superior ergonomics and weight savings, our C-extensions are also compact enough to fit in a standard size bass bag. Lastly, our same beautiful and highly figured woods can be carved into extensions that complement your new instrument’s beauty, with a well-integrated thick ebony playing surface.
Every C-extension is provided with a traditional nut so the extension can be removed and the bass restrung with relative ease.
