I’m very pleased to announce that during the month of November we are running ran a competition, with a prize from the great folks at Upton Bass. You have the chance to win one of their patented Revolution SOLO II Double Bass Pickups. This is what some of the users of the Revolution SOLO II Pickup have to say about it on their site:
“This thing sounds GREAT! Very natural sounding. It sounds like my bass does, only louder.”
“The tone the pickup provides is amazing. I had the first generation Revolution before this, and it was good. The SOLO II is better.”
“…installation was fairly simple, no problems with the fitting. The Solo has a nice transparent sound and accurately reflects the sound of my bass while eliminating the boom or scratch of other bridge-mounted pickups…”
“…I would also like to add that the customer service lived up to its excellent reputation that I had read so much about.”
The Revolution SOLO II Double Bass Pickup is handmade with European Spruce in the Upton Bass workshop. To enter the competition all you have to do is head over to the competition form and name one of the improvements included in the version II pickup, and mentioned on the Upton Bass site.
We’ll be picking one lucky winner, to be announced on the blog, at the end of the month. If you haven’t got a double bass yourself, then check out their gallery of double basses for sale – it might just be time to get started – or just let your upright-playing fellow bassists know about the competition.
Check out the Upton Bass site and on-line store, they make a range of affordable, top quality Double Basses. They also supply double bass strings, pickups, amplifiers, repairs and maintenance, and even bass clothing too!
