Upright sound, plugged-in presence!

The Dean Pace 4-String Electric Upright Bass is well built and well priced. Position markers on the side help you keep track of where you are on the neck as you transfer your hard-won chops to the moaning, liberating sound of a fretless upright. Solid maple neck-through construction with slotted headstock, standard 35" scale, and traditional 6"- radius rosewood fingerboard. Piezo bridge with buffer preamp lets you plug right into a standard bass amp. Double-braced tripod stand and black chrome hardware make the Dean Pace Bass easy to manage and very cool looking.

  • Not the best, but a fine inexpensive alternative.

    As reviewed by Rudy J on 4/12/2011

    First, let me explain, I've been a musician for 30 years and a bass player for 25 but my main work is not as a musician. I needed an upright bass to use in a festival. I knew I will use it for around 2 hours and I may not use it again, but I thought it will be a good add on to my studio, so instead of borrowing one, I decided to buy it. This bass, has a couple of design flaws. First, it has only one volume control and nothing else. The sound has too much treble for my taste, but I was able to correct that with the preamps. As a regular upright bass player (the big fat bass, I mean), I tried a couple of tricks to see how this bass responds and I must say it is very acceptable for a unit at this price. Still it lacks the sound of a real upright bass, but as I said before, I tricked it with the preamps and it sounds good. At the festival, the sound people gave me a Gallien Krueger head and speakers. I had to tweak the knobs, and after several tries, I got it to sound pretty much like the real thing. Bottom line, it is a good bass for starters or people who wants to start diving into the upright world. If you are a professional, you may want to explore other more expensive options

  • Dean stick bass

    As reviewed by D. Powers on 7/5/2011

    Really nice for travel but the stand is TOO heavy. I crafted a stand-up long end pin and solved the problem. Don't like the black color at all. The natural finish would be much better. Since we needed quickly we took the black but would eagerly swap for natural. It plays very nicely but plucky with a small amp. Tube amp is best w/ a bit of chorus added. Will not bow like a Steinberger but for the $$ it is a very nice instrument. Also, the upper level harmonics are very weak and must use octave harmonic to tune w/ electronic tuner. Definitely worth the cost overall !!

  • It is worth what you pay for it, no more

    As reviewed by CSF on 5/25/2007

    It had been a while since I had played an upright. I did not want to spend too much. I didn't. It doesn't cost much, the quality is lacking, as is the tone. It does not sound like an acoustic upright bass. I have tried different strings with only minor success.It has good action however, and it has given me the desire and ability to go out and purchase a better bass.
