The Electric Upright Bass (EUB) has been around since the early 1930s originally constructed by Rickenbacker and later by the instrument manufacturer Framus in the early 1960’s followed by the Ampeg bass. It’s been called everything from Stick bass, bean pole bass, baby bass to the electric upright bass. Through the design and engineering efforts of Ned Steinberger the EUB has come to it’s pinnacle of perfection. We musicians would have a difficult time doing what we do if we didn’t have people like Ned building instruments for us and always searching for new ways for improving upon old ideas exploring uncharted areas of designing instruments and specifically. the electric upright bass.
So, I’m starting this Blog for those bassist that play or have an interest in playing and ELECTRIC UPRIGHT BASS. Lets hear about their experience’s performing, traveling and adjusting to their EUB. As you must know, mine is N.S. cr4 made by Ned Seinberger.
So please share your question and experiences, pros and cons about EUBs. Thanks
