Upton Bass Venetian Double Bass, Custom Commission 2013
This very special custom Venetian model double bass was built from remarkable woods with violin corners in a unique design. It was built with extra accessible upper bouts for the soloist, an adjustable/removable travel neck, and our angled endpin block.
Stunning flame and figure feature throughout the maple back and neck, with a long Venetian inspired shape and long ff-holes. The slim, long profile is combined with deep ribs and a large lower bout for great air volume and excellent deep bass response. Extra long Karr fingerboard and clear voice make this a perfect fit for solo and chamber music settings. Lightweight, custom machine lighted Irving Sloane English style oval tuners adorn this custom double bass. Includes a custom sized Mooradian bag!
