Frequently Asked Questions

What makes your bass different from other electric upright basses on the market?

The main difference is the way the Rick Turner pressure-system pickup recreate the 50 cycles attack of an acoustic bass. It doesn't just pickup the sound of the note, but the attack followed by the note, with a great sustain, exactly replicating the sound of a real acoustic bass. On top of this, you can actually use a bow, just like a contrabasse.

Also, The BB Signature Series Electric Upright Bass is different because it was designed by a bass player! World-renowned bassist, Bunny Brunel has over 35 years of experience, not only playing with legendary masters, but many years of design expertise, having designed a successful Signature Series electric bass for Carvin.

You will find that the The BB Signature Series Electric Upright Bass is actually very easy to use for electirc bass players, even if you have never played a fretless bass before, because of the fret markers on the side, and ability to adjust the action from very low electrric bass style to high, classical upright bass.

Unlike other electric upright basses on the market, The BB Signature Series Electric Upright Bass boasts a full 3/4 size bass, with a 41 1/4 scale and a D neck
