It's been a REALLY mild winter this year but things are cooking here at the shop! As always the basses keep getting better and we are packing some new techniques and ideas into every model.  Call Gary at the shop and he can tell you all about what makes our basses some of the best buys out there.  Or...why don't you ask us about them on our NEW forum!  
Who's going to be first?
And as always, the best is yet to come...so stay tuned!!!

And remember, if you have a favorite video clip, performance, or multimedia piece that is double related you want to share with me (and several thousand of my closest friends), please eMail me at eroy@uptonbass.com.  Thanks!

A great bass section uses the advanced Stanley Clarke fingering in the Verdi Requiem without cracking a smile! The use of technique occurs at 1:46. This is only the front of the bass section.
