Electric Upright Basses

Ready to rock? Electric upright basses are becoming more and more popular. Typically, they are used by performers of jazz, pop, country, new age, etc. They are stringed instruments that are basically a cross between an electric bass and an acoustic upright bass. An acoustic bass can be made into an electric bass by adding a pick-up that runs to an amp. Straight electric basses are available in many designs and colors. They can be made from a variety of materials and include the pick-up built into the instrument. Much like an electric bass, they can also have a variety of effects such as reverb, delay, or distortion and can have 4 strings, 5 strings, or 6 strings.

Finding the right electric bass to suit your needs can be a challenge. Violin Outlet carries pick-ups from Fishman, LR Baggs, and Realist. Our electric basses come from suppliers such as Yamaha, Bridge, Glasser, and NS Designs.
