Electric Upright Bass Testimonials
I also included a demo of my Salsa band "El Fuego" I hope you like the sound of the upright, everybody else does. It's probably the best investment I ever made.

Since I've had your upright Rita (MacNeil) wants it on all her tunes...
Bruce Dixon (Lyric)
"This unit is the best transducer on the market. It reproduces both pizzicato and arco playing in a simply amazing fashion, with startling volume available and great sonic reproduction in all playing modes. It needs no improvement. My favorite bass will never part with the Barbera Transducer; it's the best by far for volume, balance, and true acoustic-bass sound enhancement. I loved the woody sound of the Vector"
Bob McCaskey of Bass Player Magazine on the Barbera Multi-Transducer Bridge:
Nick, this new bass sounds wonderful! It's deep and very
even across the range, and it doesn't have that muted sound that the
wood solidbodies usually have. It doesn't, to my ears, have quite the
hollow acoustic sound of my bass, but it's darn close - a more natural
sound than any bodiless bass I've heard, and better than a lot of
acoustic basses with anything less than first-class amplification. A
very satisfying bass to play. It's even more consistent in sound than
my bass, where I have to be pretty aggressive on the low string if I'm
playing Barbera-only. This one's solid, even the low F, the
I don't usually get this forward attitude but I think this is a great product (Profundo). It is the best I have ever played.
Fabulous instrument !! and I'm playing it in public for the first time on Saturday night. Can't wait!

Saw your instrument played by Carl Feddema of the "Dustkickers". Amazing sound and stage presence.
