In 2003, I decided to build an electric upright bass. The bass rewarded my efforts and became a fine instrument: the sound of the bass is very warm, the tone very rich and of course it is easy to carry and amplify. I mostly use it to play hiphop, funk and groove jazz. Of course, an electric bass always sounds different from an acoustic bass, but the EUB adds interesting possibilities for playing groovy music!
At ebass.nl you can find a gallery electric upright basses, sound samples of eubs to hear what they sound like, and a report how I built my bass with lots of images. Let it inspire you and join the club of electric upright bass players!
Ebass was constructed in cooperation with Philippe from Aalta Minimoa Maquettes. I would recommend Philippe’s creative work to everyone!
