Cheap Upright Basses
Welcome to our new, upright bass page that is specially geared
towards high quality, but cheap (i.e. affordably priced)
upright basses. This page originally highlighted 2 new
(cheaper) upright basses that we offer: The Thompson plywood upright
basses and the Emile Gillet, fully hand carved bass, but because we
offer such a big selection of different plywood, hybrid and carved
basses, we've decided to break them up in separate pages:
Upright basses. The same, reliable Standard model for
$1,485 and now, hand oil varnish Standard for $1,585.
Thompson Hybrid Upright basses
starting at $2,185 and the fully carved,
Emile Gillet basses for $2,950.

Our philosophy on cheap upright basses:
First, they still have to be built on a very high level. While
the prices may be "cheap", the quality is not! The
construction of what is inside is equally important to what you see
and hear on the outside. Like our reputation for the Wan-Bernadel
basses and the Bass Cafe, everything that we offer here is only of
the highest quality (guaranteed!)
Secondly, our cheap upright basses have to be set up with the same
standards and play as any other (more expensive) upright bass that
we offer. All of our cheap, upright basses here come with a full, 2
year warranty against any kind of defects in workmanship or quality.
We're very serious about quality here! If you don't see an Emile
Gillet bass or Thompson plywood bass at a the local violin/bass shop
near you, ask them to call us. Dealer inquiries are most welcome!
