|The "Brescian" Model
The award-winning "Brescian" Model is a modern instrument with roots in the 16th century inspired by our favorite historic double basses. Its design directly mirrors those archetypal double basses with large shoulders, violin corners, deep ribs, dramatic top arching and pronounced canted backs. These qualities combine to create a larger air mass with great resonance and rich harmonics, packaged with the ergonomics, geometry, and accessibility that modern players expect from Upton Bass.
Like all Upton Basses, The "Brescian" is a versatile instrument. It can be set up as a jazz cannon pushing the rhythm section with tremendous string response. When bowed for classical music, deep and clearly pitched pipe-organ lows will lift the string section. Roots and bluegrass players will feel increased depth, string feel, and boom in every note.
But don't just take our word for it...drop by the workshop and try it for yourself. Read more about the "Brescian" model at UptonBass.com...
