Overview

The Dean Pace Contra Upright Bass is a slender upright electric four-string bass with a warm, charming output that is ideal for a wide variety of musical idioms. It is for the bluegrass player who prefers not to drag a giagantic double bass around. It is for the jazz musician whose treasured hand-carved instrument is not worth risking the perils of the gin joint. It is for the Americana musican who wants to invoke the sound and feel of the acoustic bass without the potentially prohibitive price point of a fine acoustic bass.

It features a maple top/body, a bolt-on maple neck, an ebonized curved fingerboard, side dot inlays, sealed Die Cast tuners, black hardware, piezo transducer, DMT active Contra preamp system, and more!

    Comments about Dean Pace Contra Electric Upright Bass:

    can't really play con arco, the bridge is just not serviceable for a bow, but playing pizzicato it feels and sound just like a real doublebass fingerboard.

      Comments about Dean Pace Contra Electric Upright Bass:

      i use this bass in a bluegrass venue. because of its size an portability. got some strange looks at first, but once they heard the smooth deep sound they weren't so picky. it's not an acoustic double bass, so it doesn't have the exact sound,but it's close enough for me.right out of box it played really well and sounded great.very satisfied with it and the people at my guitar center store
