Sergey Poedinko of Dahrendorf Guitars sent us the details for this gorgeous electric upright bass, and I knew we had to share it. Dubbed the Darwin EUB34, the bass mixes elements of both electric and upright basses into a minimalist design.
“It has [an] absolutely ‘upright’ sound in its compact body that fits regular bass guitar gigbag,” the Dahrendorf site states. “[Its] 34-inch scale provides comfortable playing in all positions and ability to use any kind of bass guitar strings.”
The bass’s body and neck are a single piece of figured sapele that is shaped for comfort while sitting or standing with the bass on a strap. Its fingerboard and tailpiece are AAA pao ferro finished with Danish Oil.
Dahrendorf fits the Darwin with a large Murata piezo pickup that’s integrated into the bridge. The company says its patented technology “transmits all nuances in pizzicato, arco, or slap playing.”
