The Upton Bass team is safe and making basses! We will continue to do so as long as we are allowed to. Other than some power tools, not a lot separates our shop from an 18th Century version – there’s plenty of space and fresh air, just with a lot more Ramones coming from the setup bench (Jack)…
Please continue to use our website for all your bass playing needs! If you have a real double bass emergency, please call the shop before visiting. Our shop is basically closed to browsing and hanging out for the moment, but if you have a specific request, call first and we will try our best to accommodate: +1 (860) 535-9399.
In this moment we ask that you prioritize us and other small businesses over the giant retailers. We will bend over backwards to help and there’s always a real person picking up the phone. We also have a fantastic supply chain to a world of music gear – if you don’t see something you need, let us know!
With the relative quiet, we are doing well on our build queue. If you’ve thought about ordering an instrument, you might consider this as an opportunity to invest in a brighter future, one with a gorgeous new bass in your hands built just the way you want.
The most important ingredient in our 20+ years is YOU – the devoted musicians who have guided our shop with your dreams. We wish you all safety, courage and strength to get past this challenge and we can’t wait to hear your next works of art. Keep building those chops!!!
Love from Upton Bass
