Why is a world renowned and internationally awarded double bass maker building cellos?

The cello and the double bass share such common musical ground. Just name a classical bassist that hasn’t worked on the Bach Cello Suites. The second lowest string of the cello is literally that of the double basses highest string, and the cellos lowest string (C) drills down into the first position of a double bass players A string. Upton Bass has spent years perfecting the balance, clarity, and presence of these string frequencies and how they react with the player and the instrument. It’s very exciting to apply our knowledge to the beautiful tonal palette of the cello.

Upton Cellos are made entirely by hand in our Mystic, Connecticut workshop, conveniently located between NYC and Boston, minutes off of Interstate 95.
