Carved and Laminated URBs

Buying an upright bass online doesn't have to be stressful.

Should I buy a laminated bass or a fully carved one? What's the difference? Do I want a 3/4 size bass, or something else? How can I feel confident buying a bass without putting my hands on it first?

These are reasonable questions. And yes, it's easy to get burned on the Internet - there are a lot of "stores" selling cheap basses that are barely worth their weight in firewood. It's why we carry only a few select brands, and specialize in instruments that are primarily for entry-level and intermediate players -- we leave the truly "high-end" instruments to dealers and luthiers where you can audition your new high-end bass in person. But if you're looking for a reasonably-priced, gig-worthy instrument that you'll be proud to own years from now, we can help you find it.

We have a lot of FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions) about basses, including sizing guides, setup help, and more, in our collection of free resources.

And, of course, we're here for you -- you can always email or call us to help you narrow down the choices.

Thomastik Dominant Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik Dominant Upright Bass Strings
Dominants don't get a lot of press, but they have a long-time fan club of dedicated players, due to their dark, gut string-like character. Responsive for a stranded perlon core, they bow very well and deliver a nice and thumpy, short pizzicato sustain.

Thomastik Spirocore Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik Spirocore Upright Bass Strings
The ubiquitous Spirocores; among the first high-quality steel strings made, they're an old favorite for jazz and other pizz styles, and have the (deserved) reputation for exceedingly long life. Big, booming pizz tone, and full-bodied arco (though there are easier strings to bow), set these as a benchmark -- ask most anyone to describe a bass string, they'll probably compare them to Spiros. They're available in almost any variation, from weich (light) gauge, 1/2 size, 5ths tuning, Solo, and more.

Thomastik SuperFlexible Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik SuperFlexible Upright Bass Strings
Superflexible strings feature a multi-strand steel core with chrome-steel winding, which makes the feel of the strings, well... super-flexible. They have a hybrid sort of appeal, in that they are equally good for bowing and for pizz, and have a "middling" sort of tone and sustain that can be used in a variety of different genres without drawing unwanted attention to themselves for sounding out of place.
