For electric bass players who've considered the upright bass on many occasions only to be put off by the price and size of an acoustic double bass, now is the time to think again!

Boasting impressive build quality, unique features and unrivalled tone and sustain, for the price the Stagg EDB is an absolute steal, and even comes with a free multi-pocketed gig bag with a heavily reinforced top and bottom.

Rather than an electric substitute for existing double bass players, the fantastic new Stagg EDB is designed to give existing electric bass players the best possible taster and step over into the world of upright bass.

Build Quality
Although listed as a 3/4 size instrument, the Stagg EDB is perfect for both teenagers and adults. Over in stringed instrument world, very rarely will you come across a full-size double bass - A 3/4 is more than big enough, and the same ruling has been applied to the Stagg here.

With its jet black neck and fretboard upon a metallic body finish, you'd be forgiven for thinking the EDB is constructed from graphite and metal, but it is in fact made almost entirely from maple wood.
The bass itself has an attractive streamline design and is available in a wide variety of colours. A smart rounded headstock sporting P-bass style diecast machine heads sits upon a bolt-on maple neck and solid maple fingerboard, leading down to a sleek angular solid maple body. Push-fit arms are also fitted to the body for you to rest up against whilst playing if you wish.

The neat and careful finish throughout the construction of the Stagg bass is excellent, and also features a curved fingerboard to allow you to play both pizzicato and arco (bowed). Both the tailpiece and bridge action are also fully adjustable for ultimate precision, whilst an extendable endpin allows you to adjust the playing height of the bass to suit.

Electronics
One of the primary reasons you may be looking to purchase an electric upright bass is to use it for gigging purposes and other live performances, in which case high-quality electronics are a must - The Stagg EDB does not disappoint in this department!
Powered by a single 9-volt battery, the EDB is fitted with a built-in piezo pickup and volume boosting preamp for direct input into a mixer or amplifier. A flip-top battery compartment makes changing the battery a piece of cake, and a small blue LED light indicates when the 6.35mm jack cable is plugged in and the battery is in use - A handy feature to make sure you don't let the power drain.

All the wiring is neatly hidden away, and a Volume and Sub Bass control to boost the low-end are housed on the side of the body parrallel with the bottom of the fingerboard, within easy reach when playing.

CD/MP3 Input/Headphone Output
A great additional feature is both a CD/MP3 input and a headphone output - Perfect for personal practice, now you can play along with your iPod or MP3 player out loud without disturbing anyone else in the house - A definite plus for beginner upright bassists!

Sound
The EDB is an incredibly expressive instrument with a warm, full low-end that delivers the vibrato, slides and pitch bends that attracts most bass guitarist and fretless players to this kind of instrument.
Good depth and sustain compliment pizzicato results, particulary higher up the registry with some incredible treble, which in turn retains a smooth tone where even a simple bowed note feels warm and pleasing to the ear.

If you are looking for a direct acoustic upright bass substitute without spending over £1000, the Stagg EDB is not the answer, nor does it pretend to be, however for those looking for an upright electric bass instrument, the Stagg EDB offers a unqiue style, and outstanding tone and playability at an incredible price - Highly recommended!
