The electric upright bass (abbreviated EUB ) is an electronically amplified version of the Double Bass that has a skeleton body, which greatly lowers the size and weight of the instrument. The EUB retains most of the features of the Double Bass so that double bass players are comfortable performing on it. While the EUB retains some of the tonal characteristics of the double bass, its electrically-amplified nature also gives it its own sound.

HistoryEdit

In the mid-1930s, Regal, Vegal, and Richenbacker created the first independent EUBs, but in the 30s and 40s Proper Electrical Amplification equipment which could reproduce to rich, low tones of the Upright bass. This may contribute to the publics lack of interest in the 30s at Bass Violin, or Electric bass guitars.In comparison with other electronically-amplified String instruments such as the Electric Violin or Viola and Cello, the EUB has been taken up by a wider range of players, perhaps because a traditional upright bass' size makes it challenging to transport when compared to smaller instruments in this family.
