This double bass is constructed of willow (back and sides), spruce (top) and maple (neck and scroll), with a AAA grade quality ebony fingerboard, tailpiece, nut, and of course the acclaimed full “Upton Setup”, including deluxe ebony “Hat-Peg” tuners and Thomastik Dominant strings.
The sound of the UB Willow Double Bass is mellow, with
roust dark tones and a full, even projection. When played pizzicato, the UB
Willow Double Bass produces a warm, pillowy tone; and a rich, chocolaty-velvet
sound when bowed. The UB Willow is one of the most beautiful double basses we’ve
ever varnished, combining tones of raw umber and burnt sienna, and a unique
snake-skin like pattern.
The UB Willow
Double Bass could in fact be the last bass you will ever purchase! This
instrument is destined to become a legend. Will it become a family heirloom,
passed down through generations of double bass players? Or perhaps the
instrument of a future double bass virtuoso, commanding a high price at auctions
as it passes through the ages? The UB Willow Double Bass has never been owned,
and has only been played a handful of times in our Mystic, Connecticut shop, and
is immediately available for purchase. Be the first to own this astounding
instrument as it commences its journey into greatness!
