Comments about BSX Bass Allegro Acoustic-Electric Upright Bass:
I was considering an EUB for some time and settled on the BSX Allegro after finally getting my hand on one to try out. While it's an expensive EUB, I'd say it competes well with the more expense Eminence EUB. I order the Nutmeg 4 string. The color was much darker than it appears on the website and is a beautiful color and finish. The ability to easily adjust the next height is a nice feature. The preamp & onboard EQ is excellent. The bass has a body rest piece that comes out of the back on an angle to rest the bass against your chest as you would with a regular upright bass. I find the position of the body rest to be just right and the playing position feels familiar. The bass is easy to balance when playing standing or with a stool. The bass definitely has a nice acoustic quality to it's sound without the feedback issues that are more likely with a regular upright bass. A decent will padded gig bag is also included. I had a question or two about the bass and contacted BSX both by email and phone and found the company to be very responsive to inquiries. My email was answered in just a few hours. In summary, made in USA, great craftsmanship, Nice neck, familiar feel, portability!, excellent acoustic sound, responsive established builder. I'm very pleased with this bass and this this is something I will keep as long as I'm playing.
