You’ve put in the hours of rehearsal. You’ve given countless recitals, lessons, and performances. You’ve suffered for years with basses that just don’t have that “human” or old vintage sound. You’ve been searching for just the right bass…You’ve come to the right place.
The UB Concert Special Deluxe offers the same spirit and strength in tone as the Concert bass but with more sophistication in the arching patterns and more depth and darkness in the overall tone. Please call us to discuss any of your questions 860-535-9399 if you are seeking a serious double bass in the $20,000 and less price range.
The UB Concert Special Deluxe is a hand-carved instrument for double bassists looking for rich, warm tonal fireworks of a vintage instrument without the worries of a yearly repair bill from the luthier. Best quality hand carved German spruce is used for the top, while well seasoned English Sycamore (European Maple) is hand-selected from our special reserve for the round back and sides. Completely hand graduated to our own proven patterns, The UB Concert Special Deluxe is varnished in the Italian tradition to your liking, utilizing the varnish as a preserving agent which is meant to protect the wood as opposed to suffocating tone like spirit or lacquered varnishes do. Top quality hardware and ebony is installed on each and every UB Concert, and of course every bass includes the full, highly acclaimed “Upton Bass Setup”.
All Upton Basses come standard with our 42 inch string length and a D neck. However as each bass is custom made for every client, we offer our basses with many custom configuration possibilities. Upton Bass offers all of our basses with string lengths of 42″, 41 1/2″, & 41″ All of our string lengths can be configured with your choice of a D or Eb (e flat) neck. We can also make all of our basses as left handed instruments, truly crafted for the lefty bass player. Five stings are also a common customization with either a low B or high C string. Outside of our customizations we also offer many upgrades and add-ons: please visit our UB Bass Upgrade Options Page. Do you have an idea? Something you don’t see listed on our site?
