Stagg EUB with £300 fingerboard shooting, stand and pedal - *SOLD*

Recommended Posts

Right, so I really wanted to give an honest attempt to play upright but it did not work out. I have decided I do not want to work that hard.

Still, I wanted to make sure I had an EUB with a great fingerboard. Why? Because I wanted to make sure that if I failed, the problem was me and not the instrument. If I hear the string buzzing when I play, is it me lacking the strenght and technique, or is it the EUB having a lumpy fingerboard, as it is usually the case with a cheap EUB? Should I try to press harder, or am I wasting time and I'll just injure myself because the EUB is to blame?

This is why I bought an old Stagg EUB on eBay, and then I spent £300 in a professional fingerbord dressing at London luthier Bridgewood & Neitzert. They have removed that odd resin that Stagg puts on their EUBs, gone back to the wood and then stained. You can see a photo of the wood underneath -  sent me by the luthier - below. Their work also included reshaping bridge and nut. I can provide proof that they  did the work.

If you buy a Stagg new, you are very very unlikely to get a fingerboard as good as this (I have tried two, they certainly were not great).

With the Stagg I give you the stand, the gigbag (not in amazing conditions), and a Behringer Acoustic ADI pedal that helps a lot in getting a bit closer to an acoustic bass sound (no power supply though).

Even with the fingerhoard shooting, this is still a Stagg, so you'll have to contend with some endpin rattle. If you play around with it you'll find an angle that keeps it quiet though.

Pickup only from Bromley
