|UB Standard Hybrid
The UB Standard Hybrid is our back-to-basics hybrid bass for players who are discerning in tone but on a budget. It's also the bass of choice for Bernice Hembree. The hybrid design gives her everything she needs in a bass: the laminated back is sturdy enough to withstand the bumps and bruises associated with touring, and the hand carved spruce top allows for optimum tone.
The UB Standard Hyrbid is a round double bass with a carved spruce top and plywood back and sides. All of our plywood is made in-house from our own tonewood veneers, and the top is carved by the same guys who make all of the custom Upton basses! Its design is based on the gamba pattern of the Upton Bohemian Model. The UB Standard Hybrid is hand built in Mystic, CT and features top grade ebony components, German tuning machines, our best quality bridge, and more. These specifications allow us to offer a double bass at tan entry-level price with the same acoustic design and ergonomics you'd expect from the best of the Upton Bass lineage.
