Upton Bass Low C Extension for Double Bass
Choosing the “C” Extension upgrade option
on your Upton
Double Bass allows you to hit those low notes in the score! We custom
make each extension. $1,500 gets you a custom made English sycamore and
extension and one
gate at the “E” (full ebony extensions start at $2,000). Each
additional gate is $250.
Our fingered bass C extension is
constructed of top quality
English Sycamore and best grade ebony for a lightweight addition
to your bass. An added benefit of our design is that it does not
significantly add length to the scroll, and your bass will still fit in
a standard size bass bag.
The Upton Bass Extension
is not only available on Upton Basses, we can custom make a
C-extension for any double bass. If you need an extension for
your precious vintage instrument, the Upton Bass extension is
non-invasive: we will not cut
or drill into your scroll like the vast majority installed by
other luthiers. We weep when we see the butchered scrolls of
historic basses! You know who you are, put away those saws!!
There should be a law.
Extensions are also available if you require! Please call
us to discuss the B option and pricing for your bass build or existing
