I just stumbled upon some videos featuring the notorious Van Zale bass played by Jo Didderen. Enjoy!

As you’ve probably seen, there is a EUB playlist on the video section of this website. Below, you also find the playlist. Do you also have videos on YouTube of electric uprights? Let us know by posting the link below. Then, your video will be added to the playlist.
Now you all know the electric uprights built by Zeta, right? And you probably know their crossover bass as well…
Some of us think that EUBs need to be played upright. That gives us a cool look and a better sound. Well, have a look at the following video, which shows us a Zeta Crossover being played by Will Karling. Nice playing and a great sound, Will…reminds me a bit of the bass in the recording of Cowboys and Angels by George Michael.
Yes yes yes, it’s spring again in the Netherlands. Ibo asked some of his friends – including me – to join him at a jam on the Noordermarkt in Amsterdam. The weather was great, the atmosphere even better. And the Applecake at Winkel was delicious. Petra made a small video, capturing the busy atmosphere at the Noordermarkt. I play on a regular double bass here, as there’s no need to bring ebass to acoustic gigs. Yeah I know, this video is quite off topic, but it’s so sweet! Who says the Dutch are surly?

I came across this video of an Azola Ultracoustic Baby Bass, played by Roby Perissin. The sound is somewhat “crunchy” but the sound of these babies is really cool (the Azola had a hollow body, which sure contributes to the deepness). Enjoy the video!
Update: Roby commented here, I’d recommend to check the less crunchier sounding songs on his myspace. Or hisspace, if you like.
