This is a great entry level bass for upright beginners and people who might need a smaller and more ergonomic bass. Also a very convenient travel and gig bass! Would make a great Christmas present or work well in a school setting.

Lightly used and modified Palatino Electric upright for sale. Comes with case, bow, and sheathe for bow. U-bar is part of the bass, it connects to the body so you can lean it against yourself.

This was bought new from Long and McQuade in August of 2016 (https://www.long-mcquade.com/15894/Band/Orchestral_Strings_-_Instruments/Palatino/Electric_Upright_Bass_-_Sunburst.htm).
Solid Spruce Top
Maple Back & Sides
Ebony Fingerboard
Piezo Transducer Pickup
Active Tone & Volume Controls
Carrying Bag with Backpack Straps

Has only been used for 4 gigs. The electronics were newly replaced by L&M from the factory issue in the winter of 2016-2017 as there was a minor issue with the pick-up (probably a broken contact during shipping).

The factory issue strings have been replaced with Thomastik Bel-cantos, a great hybrid for jazz pizzicato and arco playing. A bicycle tube has been cut to size and place between the bridge and piezo to reduce the high-frequency components of the tone and give a more 'woody' and authentic double-bass 'thump' through the wooden bridge of the instrument.

This is an excellent electric upright. I bought it to continue playing jazz music when I began having tendinitis issues on my larger and less ergonomic upright bass. This has an excellent and authentic upright tone, and retains the feel of a real upright, though on a slightly smaller scale.

Comes with three sets of used string to sample styles.

I am selling the bass because I have relocated to Montreal and it seems easier to repurchase rather than move the instrument across country. Make me an offer!!!
